Ricks Four Way English Channel Relay Swim

 Big Ricks Swim Team 
Four  Way English Channel Swim 2018 .
Ricks Swim team are  attempting a quadruple swim of The English Channel... 
if successful we will be the third team in History to ever complete  this epic swim and
  the first ever team from Great Britain and Europe to do so ...

It is not just the distance - 136 km or 84.5 miles 
( the swim could be double this distance due to the Channel Tides)    
that presents a substantial obstacle, but also the tidal changes,
 cold water, jellyfish,  probably at least two full nights swims ..
after all that lets not forget 
we are swimming across the busiest Shipping lane in the world,
not once but four times ..

Big Ricks  attempt of a non-stop quadruple crossing of the English Channel 
– is expected to take two days and nights – 
and will occur within between  September 2nd to 8th 2018   .
it Should be a fun 48 hours .!!!!’
