Cherie’s Swim

Posted by on Aug 26, 2012 in Uncategorized


We had an amazing day out on the water yesterday during Cherie’s crossing attempt!  Our film crew boat met Cherie’s support vessel on a dark, cloudy morning around 5:30 am at Arch Rock, Anacapa Island.  Cherie plunged into pitch black water shortly after 5:30 am.  Swimming conditions were ideal with glassy, high-sixty degree water though her swim was not without a few surprises including thousands of jelly fish, a mid-channel school of bat rays and mola molas, and a strong nearshore cross-current.  Visibility was perfect for filming and we captured some awesome footage while documenting her attempt.  Did she make it?  You’ll have to wait and see!……   😉
