Found on a pendrive today - Simon Willis's recording of the 3 swim attempt's on the big minch channel between the Isle of Lewis and the Scottish mainland. Colleen managed her swim (non wetsuit - she's amazing) becoming the first person to swim the big minch channel ever. Norman Todd got pulled out of the sea and I went missing for 4-5 hour's, mostly in the dark. Day's after I was rescued, a friend figured out that if I'd be able to swim another mile, an eddy would have taken me into the shore. Hey ho, I organised my own solo swim in 2019 and successfully swam from the Scottish mainland to the Isle of Lewis, becoming the first man to do it (wetsuit) and becoming the first person to have swam both the Little and Big minch channels.
