    Unofficial reports are that he landed in 13 hours 13 minutes.

    The previous record for the earliest swim of the year was set on 29th May 1990.

    What an outstanding achievement!

    NOW HEAR THIS

    NOW HEAR THIS

    Howard James previously known as Howard Keech (EC and NC swimmer) one of the most understated blokes who never shouts his successes but achieves regardless, usually under the radar, is now THE NEW record holder for the EARLIEST English Channel Swim…congratulations 13 hours 13 minutes TBC

    The previous record was held by THE KING himself Kevin Murphy who swam on 29 May 1990.

    I am sure he would agree with me saying the following..

    IF YOU THINK THIS IS AMAZING THEN PLEASE PLEASE SUPPORT HIS WIFE, ESMARI JAMES BY READING THEIR TRAGIC STORY AND BY PURCHASING THE TRACK TO BE RELEASED IN MEMORY OF THIER BEAUTIFUL DAUGHTER..

    YOU KNOW YOU WANT TO

    Beware of loud techno music, but otherwise some great footage of an impressive 13-hour swim in 54F/12C water.

    Howard puts his head down and gets on with the job in hand. Encourages others in a understated way.
