Cherelle Osteringer winning the 33rd Possibly Annual Hawaiian Christmas Looong Distance Invitational Rough-H2O Swim on Oahu

The Hawaiian Christmas Looong Distance Invitation Rough-H2O Swim is a volcano swim and informally known as the Double Roughwater because it is a double-crossing along much of the same course as the annual Waikiki Roughwater Swim. The race founded by Jim Anderson is held in early December and starts at Sans Souci Beach near the foot of Diamond Head on Oahu in the state of Hawaii. The invitational-only race has been held for 33 consecutive years until it was cancelled in 2015 by race director Jim Anderson of Honolulu, Hawaii.
