swim update 16h59

Filed under: Channel swim 2006 — andy @ 4:59 pm

latest sms : "just past halfway mark after 8 hour swim. Windspeed has increased and the weather conditions are deteriorating. Changed feeding to hot honey. Playing chicken with tankers and ferries. Whole crew seasick"

  

Pic1 Ferries travel in the same direction as the swimmers. Pic2 crew getting fresh air on the bow. Only Fran didn’t get sea-sick; she didn’t miss a beat through the whole trip.
