Goding has crossed this channel individually more than any other swimmer, but this past Saturday he swam from Club Lanai to the Mala Wharf in Lahaina, Maui.
The 65-year-old swam with his younger Ala Moana Beach Swim Club teammates Ryan Leong, Hudson Slay and Stefan Reinke. Quinn Riordan and Marcus Guttman were also part of the six-man tandem swim that was about 16 km in distance, taking 5 hours 22 minutes.
Pat Goding reported, “There were great conditions, smooth with minimal wind; however, they faced strong currents at the end so they finished at Mala Wharf instead of Kaanapali Beach.”
