Port to Paris – Libby O’Farrell

In July 2103 Libby O’Farrell became the 100th Australian and 25th Australian woman to successfully swim the English Channel. Libby shares with us her story on tackling one of the world’s most difficult swims, from swimming at night, to jellyfish, tankers, duck fat and teamwork.

This talk was presented to the Port Melbourne Historical and Preservation Society on 22 September 2020.
