Introducing the Brisbane to France via Dover English Channel Relay Team!!

On the 14th August 2016, Streetbuild's Co-Director, Tim Gagen, along with his wife Rachael and 4 other inspiring individuals, took on the challenge to swim across the English Channel.

From Dover in the UK, across to France, each swimming 2 x 1 hour intervals, the total time it took to complete this brave swim was 12 hours and 40 minutes.

Dodging jellyfish and tankers, ocean currents and freezing water, this was an awe inspiring effort!!!  

The team had been in training for about 2 years for this event, taking every training opportunity they could find to brave a cold wintery ocean swim.

Well done!! We are all extremely proud of you Tim and Rachael and we can not wait to see what personal challenge you will choose next!
