Default An Interview with Jackie Cobell

Some of you who follow open water swimming no doubt have heard of Jackie Cobell. A 56-year old mother of two who swam the English Channel in a record 28hrs 44mins. I have many channel friends and all have said her feat was greater than those who swim it in under 8hrs simply because of six tidal changes, fought the cold for more than a day, and simply refused to give up!

I spent a wonderful weekend with Jackie and her charming husband Dave when they came to S.F. to swim Alcatraz at my club's invitation, and The Golden Gate Bridge here is a quick interview I did with her just prior to leaving for the swim.
