I recently had cause to exchange emails with Lewis Pugh regarding 2swim4life, we have much in common both on a military basis and a personal level. I was disappointed yet flattered to receive this today..What a true gent he is..
I would love to come and support your swim, but unfortunately I am in Cape Town - where I am training for a new expedition. I do hope your event is a great success. Go for it! And best of luck with the Channel.
With kindest wishes
Lewis Gordon Pugh
