Jill Yoneda and Susan Simmons are off.
Though the two trained together in the cold waters of Willows Beach, they’re swimming separately today at slightly different paces.
Track the two here through Simmons’ GPS.
See Yoneda’s arm in front of the green kayak.

Here is Simmons on a 9:55 a.m. feed break.
The two had initially planned to make the swim on Sunday but postponed to today due to high winds.
Their goal is to finish along the shores of Dallas Road in Victoria, as Marilyn (Bell) Di Lascio did in 1956. However, currents may dictate a different landing.
