Chloë & Paul’s Crewing & Coaching Experience:

  • Chloë’s husband Paul has support crewed all of her English Channel Swims and all her other marathons since 2009 – he knows how to support crew for extensive periods of swimming in the Channel and has passed this experience and knowledge to Chloë
  • Chloë & Paul, as swimmers, have been guided by 3x pilots across both Channel Associations – giving them diverse experience
  • Chloë has a strong network of contacts and supporters across England and the world to link you in with open water training, camps and other marathon swims suited to your ability which can assist in your training and preparations…
  • Chloë is currently training 3x Relays to swim the English Channel which include:
  • 2x American Relays who are raising US$120 000 in total for their nominated Charity
  • 1x Australian Relay who are primarily based in Melbourne Australia
  • Chloë is also currently training 3x Solos to swim the English Channel across 2015 & 2016

Chloë wants to share her TIPS with you and coach you to ensure you get the BEST PILOT, BEST TIDE, BEST POSITION, BEST START TIME, BEST TRAINING tailored to your background and needs and to put you in the BEST POSITION for a FAST swim time!

Swimming the Channel in a Relay and ESPECIALLY as a SOLO is a huge investment of time, energy, finances and your dreams. You need to be able to trust those in your support network and make sure they have YOUR BEST interests at heart. Poor advice can ruin your channel dream. No-one wants to re-attempt after an unsuccessful swim – more than the $$$ the emotional & spiritual burden is immense. Some people have the Channel ‘Monkey on their back’ for years… I know what it is like to be unsuccessful on a double and triple solo attempt and I have the experience and passion to make sure you AVOID THIS for your RELAY OR SOLO crossing!
