Joining the club.... fantastic video

I love this new video, made by my friend, Jamie Goodhead, who has to go down as one of the unluckiest aspiring Channel swimmers out there - if you listen to the narrative about his different attempts, you'll see what I mean. Plus, he's put his finger perfectly on the splendid irrationality of Channel swimming, as well as the compulsive lure of it.


Enjoy.

  1. Wow!!! I could have written this myself! I attempted in 2007 and was pulled with aspiration pneumonia a mile and a half from France. Right down to the medications...this video is spot on!
