Requirements for an English Channel relay attempt include:

  • Relay teams range from 4 – 6 persons
  • You can bring your own team to the program or we can find you a team to join
  • As a minimum requirement each swimmer needs to be able to swim 1km or 1100 yards in 20min in a pool 1 year out from the Channel Relay (2min per 100m / 110 yards continuous swimming pace)
  • You must be able to access cold water, which is safe to swim in, for the majority of the 3 months leading into your proposed Channel swim. Our relay swimmers usually swim between late July – early September.
