Australian woman starts 72-mile swim from Oahu to Kauai

A woman from Australia is trying to swim between Oahu and Kauai.

Penny Palfrey began her swim this morning at Kaena Point on Oahu, hoping to complete the 72-mile crossing in 30 to 40 hours.

She is being escorted by a safety boat, which carries lifeguards for her safety, as well as her swim adviser, Steve Munatones.

Plans call for a nonstop swim, with Palfrey treading water during food breaks.
