UPDATE - After no swimming for a couple of weeks due to a very nasty cold and cough, I finally got back in the water and swam 60 lengths this morning. Accordingly I am now 5.7 miles across the Channel. That means I only have 16.3 miles to go or 1,016 lengths!
Thank you to all who have sponsored me so far. It is a very worthy cause. You can read all about it on the Aspire web site www.aspire.org.uk/channelswim .
