Team story

[p]Big Rick’s Chicks is a group of 4 swimmers from the United Kingdom hoping to be the first ever all female relay team to swim a medley relay across the English Channel. We’ll be doing this in traditional medal relay order: backstroke, breaststroke, butterfly, and front crawl. Each swimmer will swim for an hour and we will keep rotating until we make it to France! [/p][p]Our team consists of Mel (backstroke), Claire (breaststroke), Lucy (fly) and Sarah (front crawl). [/p][p]The swim is in aid of Surfer’s Against Sewage. They are a UK based marine conservation and campaigning charity that aims to inspire, unite and empower communities to take action to protect our oceans, beaches, waves and wildlife. [/p][p]If you have any pennies spare that you can donate, it will make a real difference to the charity and it will help give the girls a massive boost when the going gets tough.
