Hayley Barnard Completes Channel Solo Qualifying Swim

Jun 3rd, 2017 | By | Category: News

Congratulations to EDOWSC swimmer Hayley Barnard who successfully completed her 6 hour qualifying swim for her English Channel solo swim at the end of August. Hayley is raising funds for Orfund, a small charity based in Poole that helps orphaned children and young people in Dedza in southern Malawi.

Hayley swam with the support of friends at the Channel training group “Durley Sea Swims”. The qualifying swim has to be a continuous swim in water of less than 60ºF / 15.5ºC. Channel Rules apply so no wetsuit! The current surface water temperature in Poole Bay is around 14ºC.
