10-year-old swims Au‘au Channel

Skylar Webb, a 10-year-old fourth-grader at Le Jardin Academy, was among 11 Aulea Swim Club members who successfully swam across the Au‘au Channel between Lanai and Maui last month.

Webb is believed to be the youngest to swim the 8.9-mile channel at 10 years and two months, finishing in 6 hours, 54 minutes on Nov. 23. Florida's Rebecca Mann was 10 years, nine months when she swam the channel several years ago.

Other Aulea swimmers who completed swim, the sixth for the club, were Mark Baker, Josh Bittick, Jaek Horner, Cameron Lyon, Nicolas Zachmeier, Van Cornwell, Katie de Mieri, Eric and Celia Compton, and Webb's father, Alex.
