On September 24-25, 2009 Penny Palfrey of Australia became the first person to swim solo from Santa Barbara Island to Point Vicente in 17 hrs 53 mins


Chris swam out to greet Penny at the finish

Closing in on the finish at Point Vicente!

Making excellent progress!

Kayak Guides Tony and Jesse

Jesse Gros led the way

...and she's off!

She's ready to jump!

Looking for a place to start...there are sea lions all around...must keep Penny safe in case they become territorial.

Penny is centering herself before her 40 mile swim...and she's ready!

Mugging for the camera while we wait 'till it's time to start

Penny is All Smiles and Ready to Go!

Boarding the 'Outrider' and getting ready for the Big Adventure!
