24 Hour Swim
Here’s a video taken by Vanessa Daws at a 24 mile in 24 hour swim I took part in in April 2011. Inspired by 2 swim 4 life, the format is to swim 1 mile on the hour, every hour for 24 hours. Quite a challenge, particularly in the small hours of the morning.
I really like this, as its all taken underwater, and the music sets the tone. Well done Vanessa !

Lough Erne 2010 17K
The Lough Erne / Enniskillen 17K Irish Championship is one of the longer (if not the longest) swims on the Irish calendar. It’s a freshwater lake / river swim, so the water is less buoyant than sea water. This means your body lies a bit lower in the water, which makes it a bit harder on your shoulders as you have pull more of your body through the water. This is a clip of me about 200m from the finish. It doesn’t look it, but I’m actually sprinting here !
