  1. Hello all

    I am going to be doing a three swim challenge over three years for charity.

    This year I am swimming the Bristol Channel from Ilfracombe to Swansea. This is a distance of 30.5 nautical miles or the equivalent of 2240 lengths of a standard 25m pool. I am planning to do the attempt on 28 August.

    Currently there is only one recorded attempt of this by Gethin Jones last September who set a time of 22 hours. My training currently places me in the 19-20 hour range.

    I am raising money for Help the Heroes and for the Royal Navy Charity.

    If you would like to sponsor me, please could you visit http://www.justgiving.com/Daz-Jaundrill

    Please be advised any money raised via justgiving is going straight to Help the Heroes as the Royal Navy Charity have not signed up as yet. Money that I receive direct from local sponsors will go to the Royal Navy.

    You can follow my training and the updates from the day on twitter @darrenjaundrill

    Anyone who wishes to cheer me out or welcome me in on the day, please stay tuned to twitter for approximate timings.
