Alex is half-French/ / half-American and grew up in London. His brother Stephan as well Alexander, as one of the other members on the Channel swimming team, have both volunteered in the non-profit organisation (LHR) that we are raising money for.

All teammates have spent considerable time in China where they became good friends. We are also interested in supporting causes that support women's education in rural China as well as other organisations that support the European migrant crisis.

WE MADE IT!

We set off last Monday and swam to France in 12 hours and 7 minutes. It was a truly unique experience that we will never forget.

Thanks for all your support. Please check out our campaign page for photos of our swim, and more detailed account of the cold waters, strong currents and 1metre jellyfish!

We have 4 days left and now want to try to get to USD20k raised before then. Help us get there by sharing this campaign:

Many thanks,

Your boat will be Sea Leopard. Your family and friends can track it here when it’s at sea:

Alternatively, you can use the other organisation’s tracking link (which unfortunately I think is better as it has all the boats on, does the snail trails, and also has the lane lines on):
