Australian woman sets out on 115km swim

An Australian woman is trying to swim between the Hawaiian islands of Oahu and Kauai.

Penny Palfrey began her swim on Tuesday morning at Kaena Point on Oahu, hoping to complete the 116-kilometre crossing in 30 to 40 hours.

She is being escorted by a safety boat, which carries lifeguards as well as her swim adviser, Steve Munatones.

Plans call for a non-stop swim, with Palfrey treading water during food breaks.
