William Baker - Successful Solo Channel Swim - 6th September 2012

Report by Stuart Gleeson.
 
William had some bad luck having previously been booked to go with another pilot who had some engine difficulties, so it was a case of him having to wait for my other trips to go before I could take him.
 
A cool but still night, we started William from Samphire Hoe at 0326. Quite a bit of traffic in the lanes today. William had some sickness, pain & moments of doubt but managed to carry on despite these challenges. After 18hours & 40 mins, William landed at Wissant.
 
Well done William. A tough courageous swim.
