Cyril Baldock (Twitter) & web, Australia, just broke Roger Allsop's 2011 (UK/Jersey) record for oldest person to solo the Channel; Cyril is 70 years and nine months, beating Roger by five months. Cyril first soloed 30 years ago!

Roger was 17 hours 41m while Cyril was 12 hrs 45m!

Meanwhile Otto Thaning (73, South Africa) awaits his tide for his chance also while Sue Oldham also waits to try to break her own record for oldest woman (set at 65 in 2006).

Exciting & inspirational swimmers all!
