Happy Wild Swimming English Channel Relay Team

The challenge ahead starts with months if not years of hard training in cold water. Then the big event itself … swimming across the English Channel to France.

Notoriously the crossing is through the busiest sea traffic imaginable, including cross-channel ferries, oil tankers, commercial fishing vessels and privately owned yachts. Add in a mix of waves, gusting winds, changeable tides, stinging jellyfish, sea pollution and strong varying currents … and you’ll understand why so many fail to reach French soil.

However, the ‘happy’ team will be in safe hands as coach Tony Marshall successfully swam his solo crossing last year and is in training for a unique double-crossing solo next year. This year he has trained the 6 swimmers for their relay and has high hopes for success.

One thing is for sure, the team will be staying warm from all the elements this life-changing challenge throws at them as they’ll be huddled inside their Happy Wild Swimming Dryrobes, which are waterproof, towelling insulated for warmth and quick drying and are the perfect individual’s private changing room.

Dryrobe with choice of wording: Happy Wild Swimming or Happy Swimming


100% waterproof and windproof outer shell fabric. All one-piece body construction so no shoulder seams.

Super warm lining made from a synthetic Lambswool. This draws the water away from your skin, drying you instantly while insulating you and making you feel unbelievably warm. Conventional toweling once wet can take an age to dry and often remains wet against your skin. Add to that some wind chill and you will be suffering before you know it.


The full-length 2-way reversible YKK® zip allows you to grip the zip from inside the robe while you are changing – an essential element in the design to allow fast easy entry & exit particularly when your fingers are cold or numb. The zip can also be used as normal from the outside.

All the seams on the dry robe advance model are sealed which along with minimal seams anyway ensure excellent protection from the elements.
