Lin Chia-he, an endurance swimmer, completed the first single-day round-trip Turtle Island swim. From Yilan”s Wushih Harbor to the shores of Turtle Island and back is roughly 20 kilometers and takes a motorized boat about one hour. The feat took nearly 13 hours in the water with only a 40 minute rest on the island.
