Over half way across....

I heard word at 06:30a.m. eastern time (11:30a.m. England time and just over 7 hours in the water) that Pat is 1/2 way across the English Channel. Weather is cloudy and rainy; water conditions are choppy (Pat thrives in choppy water).........she is still looking strong in the water, but currently nauseous from the boat exhaust.

Thanks for keeping the updates going Sarah. It looks like there is no SPOT so you are the sole link.
Hopefully the "total body confusion training" is standing Pat in good shape with fumes and chop.
I am hoping looking at the data that the last 1/3 may be easier going.
