Swim the Big Blue, the record-breaking British expedition that begins in November, is seeking final sponsors.
The expedition, which counts Sir Ranulph Fiennes as its patron and will raise vital funds for charities, will see British swimmer Ben Hooper swim ‘every single mile’ of the Atlantic Ocean – a feat that has never been achieved before.
‘Swim The Big Blue’ will chart a course from Dakar, Senegal to Natal, Northern Brazil across the open Mid-South Atlantic Ocean. Using freestyle swimming (front crawl) Ben will swim up to a total of 12 hours per day. His epic swim will take him over 30-foot surges, passing through shark inhabited regions, and without doubt, he will encounter jelly fish, flying fish and a harsh Equatorial sun. Then, there will be “The Doldrums” and her stillness, humidity, lack of movement…yet at any time the dead calm could explode into raging storms, heavy squalls and lightning to sting the sea.
The expedition, which is represented by Palamedes PR, is now seeking sponsors and we are pleased to provide you with a link to the Sponsor Pack, where all of the available options can be found.
