We pick up with The Great British Swim with Edgley braving the unseen…
GREAT BRITISH SWIM: EPISODE NINE
The Great British Swim isn’t all sunshine and dolphins. This week Ross entered the dark zone and gave us a first-hand account of what swimming in the dead of night is really like, and brought us face-to-face with the creatures that lurk there.
Ross also provided a behind-the-scenes of life on the boat. Where does he sleep? What’s his safety checklist? What awful hour is he waking up to swim?
GREAT BRITISH SWIM: EPISODE TEN
The Great British Swim is as much a mental game as a physical one, and as Ross arrives in Scottish waters the enormity of the task facing him begins to hit home. It’s now time for the Great British Swimmer to call on the advice of his good friend and ex-special forces operative, Ant Middleton to help him overcome the ensuing mental battle.
Not only do we get a visit from a SAS hero this week, but mischief comes knocking from Ross’ two brothers who make their way on the boat. About time the strongman swimmer got a trim don’t you think?
GREAT BRITISH SWIM: EPISODE ELEVEN
As he hit the halfway point of the Great British Swim, Ross reflected on how his body is adapting to suit the challenge and gave us three reasons why he is in love with the Scottish coast.
GREAT BRITISH SWIM: EPISODE TWELVE
Records are there to be broken and that’s exactly what Ross Edgley has did this week. He’s now set the World Record for the longest ever staged swim. Most people would be happy with just that accolade, but not Ross, who was quick to acknowledge, despite the celebrations, there’s still a long, long way to go.
It’s OFFICIAL (eek) 😊 Today the #greatbritishswim became recognised at the World’s Longest Staged Sea Swim (without flippers & snorkels). Muchos HAPPY but only a mini celebration & then 900 more miles to go 😐IMPORTANT NOTE: If you’ve ever commented, liked or shared this adventure I CANNOT thank you enough… you’ve NO idea how much your support has helped 😊
Arrive for world record and stay for Question Time with #RhinoNeck, behind-the-scenes of sea life and map route updates from the boat’s captain.
TIME SINCE EDGLEY LEFT MARGATE
All summer long, we will be updating Edgley’s time asea with new videos here every Thursday, so stay tuned. His goal is to complete the feat in 100 days…
