We believe swimming is more than just a pastime, it’s about ecology, creativity, conquering personal demons and redefining the limits of endurance. We’re Hunter and Vicki, two London based outdoor swimmers who met while training to swim the English Channel in 2019. Our podcast is about the heroes, the eccentrics, the spaces, the untold stories and adventures of wild swimming.


Chloe McCardel- Queen of the Channel

In this edition of the SwimOut podcast Vicki talks to Chloe McCardel – Queen of the Channel.

Chloe has swum the English Channel 44 times, more times than any other person. Also she holds the record for the longest ever sea swim. She is swimming royalty but also a passionate supporter of Women’s rights, always ready to call out injustice.  Vicki spends a day with Chloe finding out about her swimming, her past and what she is up to in Dorset this summer with her new boat Channel Queen.
