Can Ross Edgley do the unthinkable? Will he be the first to swim around the entire mainland of Great Britain? Welcome to the Great British Swim.
Having battled the waves to round Land’s End, it’s now decision time for Ross and the crew. Which way next? Do they go across to Wales for a shorter, but potentially more turbulent swim, or take the (much) longer but potentially more sheltered swim up the Irish coast?
This week, Ross takes time out to answer some questions he found in the video comments. Will this challenge extend the 100 days length? How are his injuries holding up? If you have a burning question for #RhinoNeck, leave one below.
Fun fact: there is one piece of swimming equipment that Ross refuses to use during the Great British Swim. See which one at 4:04 👀
Through weekly vlogs and live broadcasts of the voyage, we want to leave you feeling motivated and ready as ever for your next big challenge. The Great British Swim pushes the boundaries of what the human body is capable of. How can you embody this test for yourself?
Ross Edgley’s ‘The Worlds Fittest Book’ is being backed up in a big way with this ultimate test. Oh — and for context? “It’s the equivalent of swimming the English Channel every day.”
