Jennifer Figge, who caused quite a stir during her stage swim across the Atlantic Ocean in 2009 is now stage swimming approximately 3,000 miles from Cabo San Lucas, Mexico to Hawaii. The 58-year-old adventurer has the financial resources to follow her dreams. She loves what she is doing and she certainly knows how to design a wetsuit that does not look like shark bait.

Good for her as she sets off on her own aquatic paths. The scope of the open water swimming ecosystem is so vast and comprehensive, there are always great, memorable and unusual things happening…at all levels…even if those swims do not always match the criteria of traditional open water swimmers.
