susan taylor"A friend and fellow swimmer"

It is with deepest regret and sadness that the Channel Swimming Association confirm that swimmer Susan Taylor died in her attempt to cross the English Channel on the 14th July. Susan was 1 mile from France. She was known and loved by so many including those at the CSA of whom many knew her personally. Susan was raising money for Rainbows for her Channel solo swim and trained so hard.

We extend our sympathy and thoughts to her family and friends at this very sad time. We have been asked by the family not to comment further. We will respect their wishes.

Such a tragic loss under valiant circumstances. If you wish to continue to support Susan's chosen charities please click here.
