Follow A SEAL Across The Pacific

Follow A SEAL Across The Pacific

Walter Scott, an attorney and a former Navy SEAL, will attempt to replicate Penny Palfrey‘s 40-mile (64 km) channel swim from Santa Barbara Island to Pt Vicente on the California mainland starting on Saturday night.

To date, Palfrey has been the only person to complete this 64 km crossing in 17 hours 53 minutes on September 25th 2009. Nearly 4 years to the date, Scott will enter the same waters sans a Shark Shield with the same goal to walk onshore nearly a day later along the California coastline.

Scott can be followed here as he plans to enter the cool waters at Santa Barbara Island before dark on Saturday, September 21st.
