Released by CS&PF Secretary (& King of the Channel) Kevin Murphy on email (I didn’t see that one first). There were swimmers out only two days ago on the last unbookable tide.
Here’s the figures:
Total swims: 124
Percentage of swims (solo and relay) that were successful = 70%
Total solos: 68
Percentage of swims (solo) that were successful = 62%
Total relays: 56
Percentage of swims (relays) that were successful = 80%
45% of CS&PF swims were relays, 55% were solos.
Congrats to all. Welcome to the Club to the soloists, you’re now one of the famous few, commiserations to those who failed or got weathered out. You’ve heard one of the Channel aphorisms by now, the Channel will still be there.
I’ll assume these are all still subject to Official CS&PF committee ratification next month.
EDIT: According to the President, these swims ARE ratified.
