Above: Shipping in the English Channel - 09.06Hrs. - September 10, 2008.
I've just looked on the shipping chart in the English Channel, and my support boat SUVA is a couple of miles off Dover next to Sea Satin. This is the number 2 swimmers (the relay). This means that I will probably go tomorrow, Thursday. I will speak to Neil Streeter later in the day.

Just spoke to Neil in The Channel and it looks as though I will go at about 20:00Hrs. tomorrow, Thursday September 11, 2008. This will mean swimming through the night first, which will get the cold dark bit out of the way first, then swim into and through the day. We will be heading for Dover in the morning. Will confirm nearer the time. Very exciting!!!
UPDATE - September 11, 2008 - 10:45 Hours. - IT'S TODAY!
We're going tonight at about 8pm! Fellow swimmers from Suffolk, Mark Ransom (Channel Swimmer 2008) and Chris Enyon from Sudbury & District Swimming Club (Channel Swimming Aspirant 2008) will help Beccy as my support crew. Will be leaving for Dover shortly and thank you for all the well wishers who have commented and text me. It's now time to deliver, and I will do my best. Please sponsor me here:-
