    They had everything they needed except brains. Left at 8 pm? What were their plans on getting back? No escort paddler? No notice to the Coast Guard? Did they assume boats would see them at 8 - 9pm? Having to hide from the Coast Guard on the island suggests they didn't think this through.

    Oh! That's what that was! They had talked about it on the local news twitter feed (we don't have cable), and I thought: "oops! they must have gotten lost on a swim." guess I was kinda right.

    Yes, I'm a pastor. I'm also training for the Tiburon Mile 2017 and maybe even the Crown Beach swim.
