Rick Seirer, English Channel Solo 2016, CSA Oldest Successful Swimmer

“Swimming the English Channel has been the biggest achievement of my life. It wasn’t just the swim, it was the whole journey getting there, right from the moment I committed. I will always remember seeing and listening to Chloë McCardel talking about swimming the English Channel at the Queenscliff open water swim. I decided then and there that I was going to do it. Thanks Chloë for leading me through an amazing adventure. I couldn’t have asked for more from a coach, a mentor and now a friend. And I’m not finished yet, a double-crossing attempt in August 2019…same place, same coach.”
