Double channel crossings

FG ≫ 2005 ≫ Double channel crossings

Tim Fitzhigham's crossing of the Channel in a bathtub (to Folkestone, of course) is features on Paramount Comedy here1, but double Olympic champion James Cracknell is aiming to be the fastest man to paddle across the Channel, on a surfboard.

He's going to raise 60k for charity when he leaves the beach at Folkestone on the 5th of September. More from the BBC.

This is my site The 'Gerald that I set up in a fury of excitement when I first came to Folkestone sometime in 2004. I'd been a frequent visitor for a while previous to that so I am technically one of those DFLs you get now. This site was updated more frequently with a calendar of events and voting for best venues + things, + I know it was a useful resource for those who were thinking of moving to the area. Now I've moved out of Folkestone again (though just a couple of miles) it doesn't get as much love as it used to. Ironic really as The town is now becoming the exciting place we knew it was just about to. I am not Gerald by the way, the name comes from a pretend newspaper in an episode of Brasseye or something, the Portsmouth Gerald, + how there is a local paper here called the Folkestone Herald. Puns like this are GRATE aren't they? Do contact me if you have anything to contribute, email anythign @ this domain, or try @folkestone or @pauly on the twitter.
