    It's a pity the makers of the game can't spell! It should say "Help me practise!"

    Practise - verb
    practice - noun

    However, wish Christine lots of luck! I agree with cashleypoledancer, she's mad!

    I complained a few weeks ago about the scruffy appearance of Adrian, but was so pleased to see him sporting a shirt and casual jacket that last time I saw the programme. How much more professional, and example setting that is, than the tee shirt and jumper look. Keep it up, Adrian, you look so much better and pretty dishy!!

    Moaksey's right, for endurance Christine...but you must get experience in the sea too - the waves and current make a massive difference. Biggest challenge will be upper and lower arm strength - learn to hold on with one hand to give the other arm a rest -everything else will be fine - your style is looking excellent in the video!

    Hi, Christine! Have just been watching your first day of training for your challenge. I think you are incredible to take this on and I'm sure you're not going to bottle out. Have a great time preparing with those two beefy trainer blokes. Just think how fit you'll be at the end of it all. I want to wish you all the best for what you are hoping to achieve. You will be earning every penny of your sponsorship money. Thank you on behalf of all those who will benefit from it.

    Good luck with the Channel, Christine.

    I used to waterski and I had to learn the hard way on two skis and then one ski by falling off a lot. Watching the films of your training, it will help you greatly if you push your hips and shoulders forward so that your body is straighter. This will also make the skis flat on the water, creating less resistance and allowing the edges of the skis to work efficiently. Also try to keep the skis parallel so that you don’t do the splits!

    The biggest problem that you will face will be the starts. Obviously you don’t want to fall in too much but you will find that the starts sap your strength quite quickly. Get the boat driver to set off quickly as slow starts make you more reliant on balancing as you are pulled out of the water.

    BTW, watch out for the ferries – they’re bigger than you!

    well done Christine - you are a wonderful woman. This from a 64 year old women who was a bit tame to try anything in her younger days. Would like to know how often you fell, the papers say 8 but according to your coach you fell at least once each mile for the first ten miles and only then seemed to get it together so was minimum of ten - you must have been frozen. what is Adrian going to do now???
