Zach Margolis reported today from Dover, England, “Today I just got the ‘go’ from my pilot, so tomorrow morning I’m going to swim. 5:15 am Friday [start]. A little over three years ago, I met Kimberley Chambers for the first time through Vanessa Slavich, and I promised I’d swim the English Channel.”

Chambers wrote, “What a truly special memory and a promise kept. Wishing my friend Zach a magical swim across the English Channel tomorrow.”

His 2017 tandem swim course across the Strait of Gibraltar with Attila Mányoki from Spain to Morocco is shown below:
