Adrian Sarchet (black hat above) spends much of his hours on dryland as a solicitor. He was called as an Advocate of the Royal Court of Guernsey in 2002.

But when he ventures past the shorelines of the world, he turns into an adventurer extraordinaire.

Besides completing 4 of the 7 channels in the Oceans Seven (English Channel + Catalina Channel + Strait of Gibraltar + North Channel), he has also completed circumnavigations around the island of Guernsey and the island of Jersey and completed 1 km winter swims at the Big Chill Swim in Windermere, England.

Adrian Sarchet is shown with International Winter Swimming Association founder Mariia Yrjö-Koskinen and Henri Kaarma at the Big Chill Swim International Winter Swimming World Cup.
