Hi All, in case anybody hasn't picked up on this news, Neil Streeter has retired, with immediate effect. This hasn't been an easy decision for him but he doesn't feel able to continue.

Originally, he intended to make 2026 his final season but he wasn't really happy about carrying on, so I hadn't booked many swimmers for that season. Eddie Spelling has all the booking info and between himself and his sons, will see that all of Neil's bookings are honoured.

Neil has piloted English Channel crossings for 19 years, including my own...and the swims of many on this forum. Thank you to all those who trusted him to get them across.

Happy retirement, Neil!
