I can't thank Cliff and Tasmin enough for a truly special experience. They set the most encouraging tone and inspired me to swim and dream beyond what I imagined was possible. I came to the camp not being sure whether long distance OWS was right for me. I left being totally hooked on long distance swims and inspired to swim the English Channel. We also had the most amazing group and I know we will continue to encourage/support each other through future swims!
