Congratulations to Nick Adams on completing a solo swim of the English Channel. Nick has now swam across the English Channel an amazing 14 times, and is one of a select few to have done the Ocean's 14. 

Nick was supported by Suva on his crossing, piloted by Neil Streeter. Great swimming and crewing.

And great bubbly by Jean Francois Bouloy
