A web tracking site shows Meghan Chisholm's progress during her July 22 English Channel swim attempt.
Swift Current's Meghan Chisholm is now closer to France than her starting point in England eight hours into her English Channel swim attempt.
Her pilot boat Pathfinder was first detected on a positional tracking website at 11:15 p.m. Saskatchewan time (6:15 a.m. England time) and she is nearing the three-quarter mark of the journey.
Chisholm's attempt began on a very straight course, but the current appears to be pushing her southward.
