They spent the night swaying and anchored off the “most desolate islands in the Pacific Ocean” – home of an untold number of Great White Sharks.
Phil Cutti, a physiologist with Stanford University, is scheduled to do the first one-hour leg and is scheduled to kick-start their 30-mile charity relay swim back to the California mainland. Once they begin their journey – never easy from the Farallones, their SPOT Tracker will be turned on and their relay can be followed online.
A video of the desolate, but beautifully stark, islands is here.
