    Is anyone here planning an attempt in 2019? You don't have to inform the FGRC prior to having a go, but it does help if we know of people's intentions. It looks like being a busy year!

    I'm pleased to announce that I completed this on Saturday. It's a great route and I enjoyed it much more than the Bob Graham! There are a few reasons for this. It is shorter so obviously not as demanding and I could complete it completely in daylight. There felt like less pressure as there is no time limit and the swims made it feel more of an adventure. The toughest parts were the ascents of Melbreak and Robinson and the final swim across Derwent Water when a fairly strong head wind picked up.

    Despite not being much of a swimmer I particularly enjoyed the swims. Weather was really hot so Crummock and Buttermere were both swam across without a wetsuit but I didn't get cold. In fact I was reluctant to get out as it was so nice to cool down! Many thanks to Martyn and the FGR committee who are regularly updating the website and Facebook page.

    Just seen on FB that two women have extended the FG challenge by doing the Bob Graham and while doing it they have also swum across Wastwater, Buttermere, Bassenthwaite and Derwentwater.

    Thatís impressive!

    Yes, Natalie Hawkrigg and Clare Regan. I wouldn't say they extended the FGR challenge, rather they did something completely different and I have to say it was one hell of an achievement.

    Mind you, these two adventurous ladies have a habit of successfully doing big stuff. Impressive.
