Swimming New Zealand’s Cook Strait

Lynne was the first woman to swim across Cook Strait between the North and South Islands of New Zealand. After being pushed back by currents for 5 hours, she completed a 20 mile crossing in 12 hours and 2 ½ minutes. This swim was heralded by New Zealand’s Prime Minister Rowling as having helped heal relations between his country and the United States.
