These swimming events are organised by Mel Holland.
Mel has lots and lots of experience competing in open water swimming events at all levels.
After organising the really successful Waveney River Swim in July 2018, Mel then went on to swim the English Channel on her own later that month. She then followed this up by being a part of the Big Rick's 4 way Channel Relay Team. They were the first British and European team to complete this feat, joining only two other teams in the world.
