Honolulu Advertiser, Sept. 19, 2008: Duo Swims Pailolo Channel
O'ahu residents Quinn Carver and Bill Goding swam the 8.5-mile Pailolo Channel, from Maui to Moloka'i, in 4 hours and 23 minutes on Sept. 13. Due to the light kona winds, surface conditions for the swim were ideal, the duo reported. Maui resident Sidney Akiona provided navigational and boat support during the crossing.
