We are the Henley Mermaids: Laura Reineke, Fiona Print, Joan Fennelly, Susan Barry and Jo Robb. We are all regular swimmers with the Henley Open Water Swimming Club.

Following a successful swim relay of the English Channel in July 2020 (raising £35,000 for Henley Music School) we set our sights on our next ambitious challenge i.e. to swim The Bristol Channel in relay from Illfracombe in North Devon to Swansea in Wales. 

On 22nd July 2021 we made an attempt to become the first female team to swim across the Bristol Channel.  Having swum 61kms, and just 4.5km from completion the tide changed, threatening safety, and the challenge was aborted.

On 12th September, there was a gap in the wind and weather - us Mermaids were ready to go, only for a storm to blow in and scupper our chances - aborted before we even arrived in Swansea. We await the next opportunity to complete the full swim.

  

We decided to use our Henley Mermaids Bristol Channel Relay Challenge 2021 to fundraise in collaboration with SunriseForBrainConditions.org  for the following wonderful charities:  Huntington's Disease Association of Ireland, Dublin Neurological Institute – supporting Parkinson’s, Irish Motor Neurone Disease Association & MS Ireland. All funds raised on this page will go directly to and will be split equally between the four charities. Funds raised will be used to provide specialist care and support to people with these conditions and their families. Funds are urgently needed and your support in 2021 will greatly help these 4 worthy Brain Condition charities.

 

Sincere thanks to those who have supported us already.

If you would like to help these great causes for the first time or again please  support our Henley Mermaids Auction on 28th October 2021. Simply click the link below to register.

 

Many Thanks for your support.
