Chloë McCardel and Roy Beal organise swim events and camps in Southern England with Chloë’s very own 51 foot coastal cruiser boat called 'Channel Queen'. They specialise in events along the stunning Jurassic Coast and the Isle of Wight, including The Needles.

Chloë is the Head Organiser, heading up the logistics, bookings and coaching and is the Assistant Skipper (boat captain / pilot) to Roy Beal, who is the Head Skipper and Navigator and Head of Water Safety. 

2022 was their inaugural year running swim events with Channel Queen and they organised many successful solo and relay swims. The calendar is booking fast for 2023. Secure your spot NOW before you miss out!
