The Swim – 9 1/2 Hours

June 30, 2009

Latest Update from Jane:

Almost 9 hours in and about 2.5 miles from french soil.  Got socked wth some serious fog about 1hour ago abd temp dropped about 15 degrees and winds and swells picked up.  At her last feeding MM said she felt like she was swimming in circles!

Keep the comments coming they are really helping her power through to chop.
