I'd say good luck...not sure, but I'm sure this will be done in stages.

i'm presuming this won't be done in stages... I think if she's plucked or quits the swim is over.

She can't touch the boat and has to take her hourly breaks for nourishment while treading. They predict a minimum of 60 hours to swim the 103 miles, simply and amazing endeavor.
