Santa Barbara Island

Quick Facts

Current through end of 2012.

Description

There have been only three swims (one solo and two relay) from this island, so there's not much data to draw from.

Routes

The shortest route is between the north end of Santa Barbara Island and Point Dume, near Malibu (37.7 statute miles).

A finish at Point Vicente is slightly longer (40 miles), but would allow for more NW-to-SE current drift. This was the route chosen by Penny Palfrey.
