They stopped on a one-way crossing at the buoy located at Fisherman's Cove at the South Farallon Island after 29.68 miles in 14 hours 9 minutes in rough seas. The swim was sanctioned by the Farallon Islands Swimming Association. Members included Emily Kreger, Patti Bauernfeind, Simon Dominguez, Kim Chambers, Ashley Horne, Dave Holscher, Kate Webber (support swimmer), Captain Vito Bialla, co-captain Patrick Horn, and David Ogden, M.D.

KIM SWIMS[edit]

KIM SWIMS is a film directed and produced by Webber that examines the cyclical force and depth of both the human spirit and water, each relative to the other. It is told through the story of Kim Chambers and her improbable, astonishing path to becoming one of the most adventurous and accomplished open water swimmers in the world. It was funded by a Kickstarter campaign and nominated for the 2016 WOWSA Awards, a recognition of outstanding men, women, performances and offerings around the globe sponsored by the World Open Water Swimming Association in the category of World Open Water Swimming Offering of the Year.
