Explorers Connect is a collective of explorers and adventurers, meeting for talks, socials and expeditions.

Beth French stretches the horizons of her own possibilities, tackling seemingly impossible feats of endurance and adventure. Beth suffered with ME from the age of 10 and by 17, she was in a wheelchair. Overcoming debilitation, she forged a path to ultimate health her own way. Beth is the first woman to swim the notorious Kaiwi- Channel of Bones in Hawaii twice and the first person ever to swim from Cornwall to the Isles of Scilly. Last year, she was named as one of the World Open Water Swimming Association’s top 50 adventurous female swimmers.

In 2017, Beth walked away from a world first, record setting, swim series with the end in sight. Find out the many faces of triumph she met as Beth takes us with her into the depths of the night, far out to sea and back to shore. With all her exploring, she still maintains she is ordinary and adventure is in all of us, everyday. What is success in adventure, and what does it mean when your destination is no longer the goal? Beth spins a rip roaring yarn that will leave you inspired and thought provoked, with a strong sense of why you want to tackle your own challenges in the first place.
