HE'S DONE IT!!!
Neal began the swim Wednesday August 10 at 1:10 a.m. and finished
13 hours and 50 minutes later on the coast of France. He was crewed
by girlfriend Angie, who kept him well-fed with Cytomax drinks and
power gels, and brother Eric, who took two brief "support swimmer"
dips with Neal to get his feet wet, including the very last bit onto
Neal surprised a German couple on the beach, who said, "Did you swim
from that boat?"
"No," Eric responded, "he swam from England."
Neal was skillfully piloted by Lance Oram, and observed by Kevin Murphy,
himself a 32-time swimmer of the Channel.
Friend Dane did not make the early swim slot to crew the swim, but
was there at the White Horse Inn to celebrate with a Guinness.
