Anyone on here done it? Or crewed for anyone that has?

Looking for a bit of advice.

Cheers in advance

im sure you have to book your "slot" about 18-24 months in advance
Slot is sorted, not for me I may add - not that daft.

Crewing for our lass and helping her with training and nutrition during the swim, wondering if anyone else had any experience of something like this?

Sounds cold. Swim Spain to Ibiza instead
One of the big ones to do in the Ocean's Seven is Spain to Morocco as it happens.

how did you go about securing a slot , Im assuming the training must be massively time consuming

Not a clue about how the slot was secured but it involves paying to get a boat and pilot to chart your course across and advise on if and when you can go.

And yeah as you would expect the training is incredibly time consuming - about 4 or 5 swims a week including one 5-6 hour one on a Sunday every week. Will ramp up nearer the date as well.

Looks like the weather is going to fuck this, this week at least.

Last chance Oct 5-11.

Shit and bollocks.
