SWIMMER Anna Wardley is looking for people to help her plot a course around Portsea Island.

The 36-year-old from Gosport has set herself the task of swimming around the city as part of a five-island swim challenge.

Now Anna and her team want to hear from anyone who knows the waters to the north of Portsea Island who can help plan her swim in June. It comes after she and her team got stuck on mudflats last week.

She said: ‘A huge amount of planning is required. We’ll be undertaking a number of recces over the next two months to ensure we learn as much about the conditions before I get into the water for the swim itself.

‘With this in mind, we’re keen to hear from anyone who is familiar with the waters to the north of the island which do not appear on admiralty charts and anyone who has attempted or completed a swim around the island.’

If you can help, contact Anna through her website at
