When you are starting out on the long journey to become a Channel swimmer, there is nothing like meeting people that have been in your position before. It is one thing corresponding with people by email, but being able to meet up with a Channel swimmer that lives near you is far more helpful and supportive.
If you are looking for a buddy, click on the "Find a Buddy" link and search for a swimmer in your area that has sent in their details just for this reason.
If you are an accomplished swimmer, or someone with experience in Channel Swimming, please enter your contact details. Just remember you probably received a lot of help when you were starting out from wonderful, selfless people; and it is a privileged position being able to give something back to your sport.
