Wendy Trehiou is first successful solo CSPF swimmer of 2012

Wendy swam the Channel in an unofficial time of 15 hours on Tuesday 26th June.  The water was 14C most of the way, and a tad warmer at 15C once out of the shipping lane.

She was accompanied by a whole pink army from Jersey.

This is all the more impressive, as Wendy is a breast cancer survivor, and has been the strongest and most positive role model any of us will meet.

Well done Wendy.
