I don't remember where I saw or read it, but I recall seeing mentioned "somewhere" that there's a Google Group for English Channel swimmers. It's private, though. I'm not sure. Does anyone know about this?
Try email@example.com Sara. I haven't heard much from it recently, although people do occasionally ask questions or post links to interesting articles.
It was active mainly about 10-15 years ago. 6 total posts in 2021, 3 in 2022, none yet in 2023. Also available on the web at https://groups.google.com/g/channel_swimmers -- makes for some interesting historical reading if you're inclined. In its day, an influential and valuable early form of social networking for marathon swimmers.
Thanks, Evan.....that link is apparently restricted.
I've requested access (I think) and will wait to see what happens.
