Swimming 1st For Jersey’s Wendy Trehiou

10th August 2015

A Jersey woman has become the first in the world to swim solo to the island from St Malo.

Wendy Trehiou completed the 36 mile crossing in 24 hours and seven minutes.

She has set records before, having been the first Channel Islander to swim across the Channel and back again – and all within years of beating breast cancer.

Wendy told Channel 103 her previous achievements didn’t make this challenge any easier.

She has been raising money for cancer charity Macmillan Jersey.
