Oldest English Channel swimmer last year – it’s official.

out of the water at last

It is official. I have just received notification from the Channel Swimmers and Pilots Federation that I was the oldest swimmer from any nation to complete a solo crossing of the English Channel last Channel Swimming Season. Glen and Julie Langford who were part of my support team and who live in England will be attending to annual dinner to accept the award.

Hi Chris

Congratulations, you were the oldest CS&PF successful Channel swimmer in 2016 and will receive the Ray Scott award to be presented at the annual dinner.

We would very much like to present it to either yourself or a member of your crew representing you.

I hope you are well and look forward to seeing you back in Dover in the future.
