Crossing the Atlantic, the hard way

From the "For What Its Worth Dept.":

Just after Tom and Amy sailed across the Atlantic from the Cape Verde Islands to Barbados, they were followed by 56 year old Jennifer Figge of Aspen, Colorado who opted to swim across. She left Jan 12, two days after Sandpiper arrived in Barbados. It took Jennifer 24 days, and she landed in Trinidad, just a bit southwest of Barbados.

Here is an article...

So sailing across with a wobbly mast ain't so bad.
