August 1, 2017.
The idea of bringing water from the shores of the South End Rowing Club of San Francisco and Las Estacas in Mexico came from my conviction that you never surrender to the sea—it allows you to cross.
Knowing that of all the crossings the North Channel would be the most difficult, I made the decision to collect water from both places and bring it to Ireland.
My original idea was to pour it one day before my swim.
Yesterday I changed my mind, only to find out that today I could not swim given the weather conditions.
At that point I decided to change the date, and I took advantage of the fact that my friends of the Chunky Dunckers group were about to go for their swim to be able to carry out the ceremony of the water.
PS as soon as I have a crossing window I will let you know.
