New Zealander Annabel Anderson has become the first woman to cross Cook Strait standing on a paddleboard.
She is only the second person who has achieved this feat.
Ms Anderson is the current Stand Up Paddling World Champion. She left Waikawa Bay near Picton about 8.50am for the journey which took three hours and 56 minutes.
She was accompanied by Shane Baxter who was the first person to complete the crossing on a paddleboard.
Anderson said the most difficult part of the crossing was the planning and logistics, and dealing with the strong tides.
