Record Breaking Solo Swim Abandoned
The Gosport woman, attempting to swim around the island of Tiree in the Hebrides has been forced to abandon her challenge.
37 year old endurance swimmer Anna Wardley set of at 05.19 BST on the 30 mile challenge on Tuesday (13th August), but had to abandon her attempt after completing 22 miles in 16 hours.
Tiree was the fourth of the swims on her Five Island Swim Challenge, following successful circumnavigations of Dragonera (Spain) in May 2012, Portsea (UK) in June 2012 and Jersey in June 2013. It's not yet clear what her plans are next or whether she will have another attempt at Tiree, it's thought she is the first to try the swim.
Her challenge was due to culminate with a solo and non-stop swim around the Isle of Wight, which is expected to take in the region of 30 hours, at the end of September 2013.
Anna is raising funds for the Samaritans, Sail Africa and the Ellen MacArthur Cancer Trust through her Five Island Swim Challenge. To date she has raised £42,000 through her swimming challenges since taking up the sport six years ago, and has set a target of raising £50,000.
