First Port Of Call
Congratulations to Julien Moreau who is thought to have become the first person to swim from Jersey to St Malo in north-west France. It took the 27 year old Frenchman just five days to complete the 38.5 mile trip, swimming six to eight hours a day and resting on board the Sea Shepherd boat which accompanied him. If you are asking yourself why on earth would anyone undertake such a challenge, it was all about raising awareness of ocean pollution. Though it seems being the first to complete the swim also played a part, as Monsieur Moreau explains “Everything is possible, and now it’s official, I am the first and only person to swim from Jersey to Saint-Malo. I am very proud of the team ?#?swim4ocean? We worked with intelligence, cohesion and determination.” Monsieur Moreau Le Daily Cheer vous salue. Apologies to any French readers out there.
