Infinity channel swimming opens its 2017 challenges to you. The Celtic Quadrant Challenges the World’s Toughest Channel Swims.

We have had a huge response on social media and via email and can now announce the opening of two amazing channel swim opportunities for you.

Following on from the Guinness World Record at Camlough Lake in 2009 the seeds of the Isle of Man swim crossing were sown.

There were two previous vallant attempts on the Isle of Man channel by a four person relay on 20th June 2010 and our good friends in Drogheda, Ireland who attempted the same channel in the opposite direction from Ireland to Isle of Man on the same day.

The team plus two reserves will be offered a complimentary pass to the HITtheWALL open water training weekend 26-29th May, 2017.
