The Battle Of Land’s End | Ross Edgley’s Great British Swim: E6


this is probably the most important point of the whole great race for them so far we’re going around land and sea on the other side [Music] so I just get a bit reflective you know just just getting a bit nostalgic looking back all because if you poke your head around that corner just over there that is Lands End and that is it’s it’s such an important part of the Great British weather but for many reasons it represents you’d be end of the south coast it means we’ve swum over five hundred kilometers from Margate to Dover all the way down the south coast and are now at Lands End and it’s crazy looking back on the whole of the south coast you’re surrounded by dogs [Music] [Music] but that’s that’s a fraction of what’s to come and that’s that’s scary and exciting and me and the team are taking a moment to just reflect and and really just appreciate what we’ve done over over the last twenty nine days and it’s been amazing and the messages on social media are just like incredible but I can only be proud for a brief moment at and then you have to look ahead cuz this so so far to go it feels like a baptism of fire but people are saying this can be Savage even like Lands End it can be really ropey here you can get the wind the waves just crashing into the rocks behind me and I mean look at it it’s just picture s you know even the local fishermen in Penzance were just like you just this doesn’t happen it just feels like you know the stars are aligning in some way we have the Battle of the bay or just eight waves for you know a whole week and then now it just feels like someone like Mother Nature Poseidon someone is just saying like they go Ross like you’ve earned this this is getting real deep but this is the sort of stuff I think about when I’m swimming that there’s just something else something or someone is just saying there you go dove for the cap do you have a safe passage around Lands End okay food atmosphere on the boat everybody’s buzzing got full vote got some epic boards as well gonna have some company today which is amazing [Music] how’s things yes it’s time to get my game face on can’t celebrate too much I’ve got big swim today very very important and this is this is probably the most important point of the whole great race for them so far we’re going around let them see on the other side [Music] I think I’d rather take a hundred away from the head country this is not [Music] [Music] grigory swim south coast plan limbs completed it tick guys this is gonna be a little bit raw I’ve just jumped out of the water so forgive me still got pink on her face water coming out my nose and salt tongue as well is in full effect my shoulders actually feel fine it’s my tongue that’s suffering it just feels feels very but that was amazing that was amazing for so many reasons I always said that Lands End was going to be such a critical point on the great very Swift one because it represents a point that we’ve done the whole of the south coast and if we’ve done the whole of the south coast it just means that everything else is achievable to do it and so it would just tick that little box it just means there we now stand a chance I’m still not celebrating and it feels a little bit weird because it’s it’s such an amazing achievement for the team as well after everything that we put in but we just know there’s so much more one of the highlights as well was just like Tom and cotty just coming out it was it was so surreal swimming past Lands End looking at the coastline having kites just whizzed past me jet skis ours is that what is going on some of the advice that I have managed to get from content with just some of the best advice I’ve actually got you know aside from swimming what you know how to swim you have to start to understand the ocean so of course you have to swim first and foremost but I’m at a stage now where just any advice any tips and tricks to try and quite tame the ocean I will gladly accept and the fact that we did 60 miles in a single tide just shows that we’re using the whole of the south coast and just basically just notching it up as training and basically just notching it up as try it was a real these this 16 mile plus tide has just really been like a byproduct of the chafing the the jellyfish the salt tongue you know I started this whole thing in Margate as raw sadly somewhere between Swanage and Plymouth involved into rhino neck and now coming round Lands End it’s just this statement of intent there and we’re just rocking up to Scotland so yeah big day London memorable [Music]

  2. Finally Red Bull, the swim is back! This series inspired me to swim the entire Pacific Ocean which I’m still swimming

  3. Every time I see one of your videos I'm reminded how hard you push every day, and that motivates my to push equally hard

  6. jolly good show ol´ chap…I shall now go put on my trail running shoes and hop along the southern Portuguese coast. When I hit my own "walls" I shall force myself to think of either rhino neck or salt tongue for as long as I can trick my mind for 😛

  7. Gone please make the vids longer because it’s soooooo good we really want to know more about your journey

  8. Ross is literally mocking the impossible. There's nothing that can't be done if you have the right mindset and attitude, thanks for the inspiration Ross ''The Rhinoneck'' Edgley! Have an awesome journey and keep on grinding! Best wishes from Finland

  9. When you get to North Wales, will you be swimming past Conwy/Llandudno? Or are you going around Angelsey?

  10. Keep up the amazing work Ross!! Seeing you’re attitude to life and fitness has completely changed up my outlook. I get up at 5am to hit a 5k every 2 days now. Now hitting more functional fitness rather than the ‘look good’ muscles. Teaming it with some Olympic lifting and power lifting for strength all whilst rocking my Vivobarefoot’s. Incredible inspiration.

  11. You are such an inspiration! Makes me believe that anything is possible. I also bought your book, and cant wait to finish reading it!

  12. I bet when you sleep you still feel like you are swimming lol.When I've gone surfing for only a few hours I still feel like I'm in the sea when I'm resting lol

  13. Okay this is great and please keep up the great work ( I’m really routing on you) but have you thought about when it’s over and being on land again? Like wouldn’t that effect you or something?

  14. Keep it up Ross! You’re awesome. My friends and I are rooting for you from Washington State in the U.S.

  15. Ever since i‘ve started watching what Ross does, i have stopped skipping any training sessions. If Rhinoneck is able to do THAT, then I won‘t fail because of five more burpees !

  16. Greetings from Poland brother! Keep it up! All this trip is insane and legendary like many people already said 🙂 Thumbs up for you and your 'little' trip 🙂 Stay safe!
