Patti Bauernfeind - Monterey Bay solo
Meanwhile... Patti Bauernfeind is swimming across Monterey Bay in California. If successful, this would be only the second solo crossing ever, after Cindy Cleveland in 1980.
Not sure what points they're using as start & finish, but this is about a 23-mile swim. Several attempts over the years, including a few by Patti herself, have been stymied by jellyfish.
So if I understand the Spot page correctly, Patti made it, yes?
Wish I'd known about OW swimming the three frickin' times I was stationed in Monterey! Damn!
Unfortunately, they aborted the swim about 3 nautical miles from the finish. Michelle Macy (Oceans Seven first woman) was on board as crew. On the SPOT track, you'll notice the telltale jump after point #46.
