The true story of Tim FitzHigham’s successful attempt to be the first person in history to row across the English Channel in a bath.

In a celebration of the epic absurd, the author of Around Ireland with a Fridge attempts to explain just how out of hand things can become from a very simple starting point. The book follows the author’s death-defying two hundred mile journey in his antique Thomas Crapper bath — not just across the Channel, but around Kent — right up to the tremendous reception and huge media attention which awaited him under Tower Bridge.

Tim met the Queen, and his bath now resides in the National Maritime Museum of Great Britain.

Review:

"Tim FitzHigham is unhinged. He is completely without hinges." -- Eddie Izzard "It is a very, very brave man who takes to the wild seas in a copper bath with only a rubber duck for support ... This is a very difficult challenge, so well done for keeping the art of British eccentricity well and truly alive." -- Sir Ranulph Fiennes "I think it's fair to say that though I'm fairly well connected in the boating world, I only know one person who has crossed the Channel in a bath! Tim is one of those special people you meet rarely in life ... I respect him very much for being who he is, and not at all afraid of it!" -- Ellen MacArthur "Tim FitzHigham only exists because P. G. Wodehouse didn't invent him first." -- Dave Gorman "Tim FitzHigham, I salute you ... Thank you for making this epic and hilarious voyage." -- Richard Hammond
