The Next Challenge - Oceans 7 Challenge
Having conquered the English Channel last year, I decided why stop there! There was still so much I could do to contribute to the cause, especially since there was heaps still to be done in the research for a cure for Children’s Cancer. That’s when the dream was born and I said to myself – “one down, six more to go!” I am now on a quest to conquer the Seven Seas! More precisely, I’m taking up the Oceans 7 Challenge.
It's a marathon swimming challenge consisting of seven open water channel swims. It includes the English Channel, the Molokai Channel, the Catalina Channel, the North Channel, the Tsugaru Strait, the Strait of Gibraltar and the Cook Strait.
This leg of the challenge is going to be tough, but with your belief and support, I will see it through!
Why Stop There
And whilst we are at it - Why stop there! Team Eade are also going back to Dover, United Kingdom. This time, not to swim the English Channel once, but THREE TIMES! I plan to establish the World Record of the oldest person to swim the English Channel 3 ways in a row. The boat is booked. The crew are summonsed. Watch this space!
Thanks to all who have been part of this journey with me. Unfortunately for all of us, COVID-19 has interrupted all 2020 plans, but as soon as I can get back in the pool I will start training, and we will let you know once new swim dates are locked in.
Stay tuned to my blog for more updates!
