Fight Against Maturity

56 Years old, 64 miles. Not just another swim.

Mum-of-two Jackie, 56, took 28 hours, 44 minutes to reach Calais from Dover after tides took her off course – swimming 64 MILES instead of the usual 21.

With husband David, 59, in a nearby boat, she beat Henry Sullivan’s 1923 record of 26 hours, 50 minutes.
