This Funzing Experience:
EC Stories is excited to host Jack and Calum from The Wild Swimming Brother this July. They'll be talking about their record-breaking adventures swimming in the Arctic!

- About the Wild Swimming Brothers -

Jack, Calum and Robbie Hudson grew up in the Lake District, where they loved nothing more than exploring the surrounding waters. They discovered that wild swimming was a great way to stay healthy, as well as being a fathomless source of fun!

In 2015, the Wild Swimming Brothers swam together across the Corryvreckan maelstrom (the third most dangerous in the world), between the rugged Scottish islands of Jura and Scarba. Then they spent 9 days swimming the full 90-miles of the River Eden, which once flowed past the foot of their childhood home. Finally, just over a year later in 2016, they swam across the most powerful maelstrom in the world, the Saltstraumen, and the largest maelstrom in the world, the Moskstraumen, in Norway's Arctic Circle. Except for the Corryvreckan, no one had ever attempted any of these swims before and whilst crossing the Moskstraumen the brothers also set the record for the longest swim within the Arctic Circle.

- About the event -

In this talk Jack and Calum will take you on a wild swimming journey from being little children growing up in the waters of the Lake District to swimming side by side as brothers across the three biggest whirlpools in the world deep within the Arctic Circle, showing you along the way how you can take your very first steps to creating an adventure you'll never forget.

Join the event to hear about their incredible adventures. Meet like-minded people. Get inspired. Everyone welcome.
