Congratulating Lewis on finishing his latest endurance swim: Greenland 2021

Lewis has finished his extraordinary swim across the mouth of the Ilulissat Icefjord in Greenland to highlight the urgent need for climate action.

Navigating icebergs and brash ice in near freezing waters has been a brutal challenge, even for a highly experienced endurance swimmer.

We believe inaction is not an option and are proud to support Lewis’ efforts to raise awareness and push for positive change.
