Since 2010, our Vladswim program has included a specific 12-week preparation for this swim. Louise Stevenson was the first Vladswim swimmer to successfully complete the race and won it! After her great swim, the popularity of our program increased with more new swimmers inspired to have a go. The program also guides and supports new and less experienced swimmers attempting a long swim for the first time.
