Molokai Channel #2 for Penny November 2011

November 30th 2011

Today in difficult conditions, under the guidance of pilot Matt Buckman and my fabulous crew headed by Jeff Kozlovich I swam the Kaiwi Channel, otherwise known by many as the Molokai Channel in Hawaii.

This morning Jeff scouted out a suitable starting place for me where I could navigate through surf and large jagged rocks to exit and re-enter the water from a small beach to commence my swim at a little after 7.30am, challenged by large and confused swells for the entire 26 mile / 42 kilometre distance I finished after dark at Sandy’s Beach through a large shore break in a time of 12 hours and 7 minutes.

More details to follow, but for now it’s time to rest!
