The 2010 Channel database was updated last weekend and we have our numbers.
Liam Maher: 1108
Jennifer Hurley: 1131
Donal Buckley: 1134
Ciáran Byrne: 1150
Gábor Molnar: 1185
Hey Gábor, tattoo time!
Karen Throsby was 1151 and Paul Massey was 1152. (Lisa was 1068 last year).
It was very successful Channel year overall with 90 successful Crossings by people from 22 different nations.
Including 2 Doubles, both Aussies, (Chloe McCardel who visited Ireland for some training) and John Van Wisse whom we met briefly in Dover. Jackie Cabell set a new Channel speed records and astonished us all. It’s only 2 years since Niall O’Crualaoich was 1002, showing the acceleration in successful crossings.
Just to note, there are no “official” numbers.
Julian Critchlow (Solo 2004, 740) started and maintains the database, and does all the heavy lifting collating the numbers every year from CSA & CS&PF, making him another Channel Hero.
