Race The Tide

My blog this month is a congratulations to Lt.Col David Baxter for his epic swim around the Isle of Wight. Along with his relay partner Major Jessica French, they completed the gruelling 96 Km swim.

David started training with me in January of this year when he told me of his intention to completely swim nearly 60 miles around the Isle of Wight. I felt a lot of responsibility as his swim coach and as a result I developed with David the Tideskater freestyle technique, and now due to his dedication to the training plan I developed for him, he is one of a handful of swimmers who have achieved this challenge. Well done David, for what was an awesome effort.

They have raised over £20,000 for Spinal research
