Penny Palfrey Sets Kaiwi Record (again)

In awful conditions Penny Palfrey makes the case for being the most exceptional open water swimmer of our time. Start time 7:36am at La'au Point, Molokai - finish time 7:43pm Sandy Beach, Oahu (26 miles.)  November 29, 2011.
Penny reported on her blog, "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 7.30 am...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."

Steve Haumschild  (in video below) and Jeff Kozlovich escorted Penny on the kayak and Bill Goding was in charge of her feeding on the boat. Captain was Matt Buckman
