I love the Video of him nearly dying from hypothermia on his FB...

It's 25+ DegC and Balmy Channel water, what's he going to be like rounding the outer highlands in the autumn storms in freezing water???

Anyone seen anything resembling a tracker?

Looks like his on course for about 1000miles out of his 2600 and that's in the easiest seas.

assuming he doesn't saw his head off with his wetsuit

Looks like about 70-80 miles in 6 days to my eye. A decent swim so far.

Wow, he swims like me in open water.

Never got the hang of sighting.

Checked this morning and he doesn't seem to have moved at all since then.

Maybe it's not a live tracker...

He’s said something about fighting with a dog, a couple of times. Wouldn’t have thought there were that many out there myself.
