Man completes round-Island swim

A man has completed a swim around the entire Island raising thousands of pounds in the process.

Mike Davis covered around 100 miles of water in just under three weeks and his efforts have generated just over £3,000 to be split between the Manx Wildlife Trust and Blue Marine Foundation.

He chronicled all his experiences throughout the journey with an online blog and posts on twitter, which captured moments such as swimming with seals and some stunning still images of the Manx landscape.

Before beginning the challenge, Mr Davis had said preserving marine and coastal ecosystems is something he believes in passionately and wanted to assist the organisations looking to preserve them.
