Though Bar Harbor resident Puranjot Kaur did not make it all 44 miles to become the first person to swim all the way around Mount Desert Island, she did make it just shy of 17 miles on her quest before stopping outside Seal Harbor around 5:30 p.m. Friday.

Kaur, 40, said she was suffering from hypothermia after more than 10 hours in the water, which hovered around 60 degrees for most of her journey. Her doctor, Mary Dudzik, had been monitoring Kaur’s physical condition for the entire swim, and made the call that her body temperature had become hypothermic.
