Pat Gallant-Charette is living proof that we don’t need to put time constraints on our dreams.

The relay team of six sea swimmers, aged 13-17, crossed the Strait of Dover in 10 hours and 16 minutes. Upon reaching France, the East Coast Icicles – members of Felixstowe Swimscapes open water swimmers club – thought they may have broken this year’s record time. But, as it turned out, the fastest Channel swimmer of all time, Trent Grimsey, had crossed the strait with five others in 8hr 47min only the day before.
