A Channel swimmer from Dover is close to completing her attempt to conquer the "Everest of open water swimming." Kathy Batts set off at 7:30am yesterday morning.
She was determined to take on the challenge - just weeks after her close friend Susan Taylor collapsed and died in the water, one mile off the French coast. This video is from roughly the half-way point and is courtesy of http://www.lovechannelswimming.com/swims.
