THE LONG SWIM

Ella Foote joins Lewis Pugh, United Nations Patron of the Oceans, on a leg of his 350-mile swim of the length of the English Channel

THE LONG SWIM

Our writer Ella, gets to swim alongside Lewis!

Many set their sights on the English Channel, it is a popular challenge for long-distance swimmers, crossing from England to France. Some even swim to France and back again; however, no one has ever swum the entire length of the Channel, until now.

This summer, renowned endurance swimmer and United Nations Patron of the Oceans, Lewis Pugh set out to swim from Cornwall to Dover. The Long Swim, around 350 miles (560km), should take around 50 days and I was lucky enough to join Lewis around the half-way point on Day 27.

About Outdoor Swimmer

A growing number of endurance athletes are swimming for good rather than glory. Perhaps the most prominent of these is Lewis Pugh, UN Patron of the Oceans. We were privileged to join him on a leg of his Long Swim of the length of the English Channel, which he is undertaking to raise awareness of the plastic in our oceans. Elsewhere in the magazine we bust some more technique myths, visit the Galapagos Islands and the Peak District, test the latest outdoor gear for swimming adventures and meet the writers of best-selling book The Salt Path.
