JUST two weeks after breaking the Island record for the fastest swim from Jersey to France, Graeme Lowe has swum the English Channel.
The Jerseyman completed the swim from Dover to Cap Petite Blanc on Sunday in a time of 13 hours and 35 minutes.
‘Overall I thought it was a great swim,’ said the 46-year-old. ‘The first three hours were very rough and I was finding it difficult, but fortunately the conditions got a lot better and eventually the sun even came out.’
