Having a whale of a time

While on the topic of seal behaviour, did you know that orcas are quite fond of munching these slippery marine mammals? 

And that the more common name of the orcinus orca is The Killer Whale? 

And that killer whales migrate through the Northern Channel? 

And that killer whales, referred to as wolves of the sea, are territorial? 

And that Wayne will be slicing through their migration route? Just saying....

Wayne likes pork pies and Guinness. He likes routine and predictability. He loves his family. He's 40+, short(ish), balding and battling with waistline expansion. He's been known to occasionally play a good round of golf, likes to tinker with 'stuff' and has rescued a group of friends from the African wild by fixing a Land Rover with a jellybaby.

He's never been a great fan of physical exertion. In short (apart from the jellybaby incident), Wayne is an ordinary person. And he's about to do something really amazingly, astoundingly and astonishingly extra-ordinary. He's going to swim the the treacherous, never-been-swum-before channel between Kintyre (Scotland) and Ballycastle (Ireland). For charity. This is his story.
