Fergal Somerville just announced that his attempt to cross the ghastly North Channel will start tomorrow at 5 am from Donaghadee with captain Quinton Nelson. Fergal swims to raise money for cancer research.

I think his is the first attempt of the season? Does anybody have info about the water temperature out there now - the sea must still be ice cold.

Fergal's blog can be found here:, and has a link to a tracker - what better way to spend a relaxing Sunday? ;-)

Whoever has further information on this swim, please post it!

Best of luck Fergal!
