My Story

GBFarallonSwim

In a bid to raise money for the fantastic charity that is the RNLI, my teammates and I will attempt to become the first non-Americans to swim the 30-mile stretch of open water between the Farallon Islands and San Francisco.

It is a perilous stretch of water that sees horribly rough conditions and strong currents. It is also in the ‘red triangle’ – an area of water with one of the highest concentration of Great White Sharks in the world.

We will be swimming with no wetsuits or shark protection in temperatures averaging 10 degrees centigrade.

To add to it all, open water swimming is one of my biggest phobias. I am training hard to be physically able to deal with the exertion but it’s the fear that will be the biggest test for me. I am not going to lie – I have had a fair few nightmares about it already.

In May,5 amateur British swimmers, supported by Swimzi, will head to San Francisco, to attempt to be the first non-American relay team to successfully swim 30 perilous miles.

The swim, described as ‘like the English Channel, but much colder, rougher and with sharks’, has only been completed a handful of times, and is generally considered one of the most dangerous cold water marathon swims on earth.

The more people that know about RNLI Great British Farallon Swim, the greater the impact, so please also spread the word by sharing our page with your friends and family. Thank you in advance for your generosity, it means a lot!
