SUPER swimmer Anna Wardley has flown to Mallorca for the first of her island swim challenges.

The 36-year-old, from Gosport, is attempting to swim around five different islands between now and September 2013.

The first island Anna hopes to conquer is the uninhabited island of Dragonera, in the balmy waters of the Mediterranean.

Anna said: ‘I’m sure the sunshine on my back when I’m swimming will make a world of difference.

‘I’m really looking forward to tackling the first swim of my five-island challenge.’

When Anna returns next week she will launch into preparations for her next swim, which will be around Portsea Island on either June 19 or 22.
