Cook Strait Swim, New Zealand

Latest update....

Pat's boat crew just sent me another message stating that the water conditions are still very rough, but a finish looks possible. Thank goodness she had all that Pine Point Beach swim training in! Pat thrives on the rough stuff! "bring on the chop, if anybody can swim through it, she can!"

I will continue to keep you all posted.

I will bet Pat does not care how rough it is or how long it takes-as long as she is standing in France by days end.
PS-the Henley 18 is my Google Blog name-not deliberate desire for anonymity

LOL, I am not getting much done either. My iPhone battery is already dead, so just put on the charger. I have been trying to keep up with emails, phone calls and text messages...

so much for getting groceries or ANYTHING done...just on the edge of my seat!

Hoping and praying that she reaches France!

Thanks for the updates Sarah. She is tough, she can do this. I am excited to see the posting of the completion of her swim.

Thoughts running rampant.
Tide running out.
Winds due to pick up.
Darkness around the corner.

Time to let me get back to work Pat.

I know damned well she will swim out there all night if there is the remotest chance of making it.
I am sure neither Sarah or Pat slept last night.
