Catalina Channel Swim – 9 Hours

October 7, 2008

Latest update from the boat

Katie – “She is about 2.5 miles out. About 1 1/2 hours left. She still looks strong. But she is cold. The water has dropped to 61 degrees. Jeff is planning to get in one more time about the last hour to finish with her.”


I truly cannot imagine just how tough she must be do to this, thats basically nearly 9 hours in cold water, thats 16c for those using teh new fangled measuments, thats put your coat on when you go out weather.


Katie – “She is just under an hour out. ”
