Molokai Channel Swim....It's a go!
This evening my crew and I met with my boat pilot Michael Twigg-Smith and Kaiwi Channel coordinator Steve Haumschild. Mike made the decision to start my swim attempt of Molokai Channel on Friday, May 19 at 5p.m. (Hawaii time zone). In Maine the time will be 11pm Friday night (Eastern Time Zone). Steve is coordinating all the logistics of transporting us to Molokai Island. My swim will start from Molokai Island and I will swim across the channel to Oahu. The distance is approximately 28 miles. I will have a spot tracker activated the moment my swim starts. Click on the link below to follow my swim. The tracker will update my progess every 10 minutes. Regardless of the outcome of my swim, I will write a follow-up swim report within 24 hours. This will be my 6th swim of the Ocean Seven Challenge. My crew is very well prepared for the challenges that I will be facing. I can't thank them enough for taking the time out of their busy schedule to come and crew for me. Also, I would like to thank my husband Jim and children Sarah and Tom for their ongoing love and support of my marathon swim adventures. http://share.findmespot.com/shared/faces/viewspots.jsp?glId=0czIGEGQx5pYenRzzLvOnJqSr7iYxDhY1
