It takes a team for a solo swimmer to be successful. Many thanks to my husband, children,
grandchildren, family, friends, and all my crew members and boat pilots for their incredible support. Thank you to the best friend ever, Yoko Aoshima, who has been a tremendous swimming partner. A special thank you to my son Tom for encouraging me many years ago to try open water swimming as a tribute to my brother Robbie. To Robbie and Johnny this is for you.
