John is a founding member of Night Train Swimmers. A long-time resident of the Belvedere Lagoon, in 2006 he decided to take up swimming. And not just ordinary swimming: John decided that he wanted to do a relay crossing of the English Channel in 2008. Talking with a few friends and neighbors, he was the inspiration behind Night Train Swimmers doing events that raise money for charity.


Since 2008, John has swam on numerous Night Train relays, and organized the Belvedere Swimming Society in 2013 to provide a friendly competition in the Belvedere Lagoon. In 2014, John will complete his second English Channel crossing with the same 4 swimmers who joined him in 2008.
