June 2013, Sean Conway set out from Land’s End to be the first person to ever swim the length of Britain.

Their home for the next few months was Friday, a diminutive, leaky yacht where Sean and his three crew members endured turbulent weather, seasickness and the inevitable pressures of living in close proximity.

In Hell and High Water, Sean shares his inspiring yet ridiculously humorous tale. From sustaining numerous injuries and being repeatedly stung in the face by jellyfish.

“If no one will sponsor you because they think you will die trying, would you carry on?”
