Well off I went yesterday, it was a tough day where winds picked upto 17 knots which had not been predicted.
After 9 hours 58 mins I became the first British female to Conquer the Cook Strait!
I feel very proud, my support crew were amazing, my arms ache and I will write up my swim in a few days time as now I have to go and pay my fees for the swim, have a nice relaxing lunch, meet a few people and then head out of Wellington-this time for good (well for this trip anyway)!
We are heading upto Auckland, it will take a couple of day to get there and we are all going to enjoy the last few days and my first few days to relax without thinking about swimming or training! Bliss! We may head back into the water though with a scuba dive!
Thank you to all of you who have sent kind messages before, during and after my swim. It has been great support and lovely to hear from you all.
