HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - A 48-year old grandmother, Penny Palfrey, and her husband, Chris, have logged one channel crossing in their quest to swim three major Hawaiian channels in three weeks.

Together, they swam from Kahoolawe to Maui this past Saturday.

On Friday, they plan to tackle the imposing 26-mile Kaiwi Channel (Maui to Oahu).

Then later this month they will wrap up their channel crossing quest by taking on the 17-mile channel between Kauai and Niihau.
