Jackie Swims the Dead Sea 2016

Jackie Swims the Dead Sea 2016

Personal message

Hi my name is Jackie Cobell!

I am essentially a long distance marathon swimmer, having the English Channel and other iconic swims under my belt, such as the crossing of The Bering Straight and a Peace Swim across the Falkland/Malvinas Islands.

My swims are usually in colder waters! This swim will be a great challenge for me, being in hotter climes, and I am truly honoured to be a part of this historic swim in the Salty warm waters between Jordan and Israel! Xxx
