Pilots Needed for the Pride Swim on June 22–And You Will Get a “Help”

We need pilots for the Pride Swim on Sunday, June 22.  While this is a South End swim, all DC pilots will get a Help.  This is an easy swim, if you are new to piloting.  It’s a tide ride of about a 1.25 miles, so you will pretty much float back with the current.  Starting point is Coughlin Beach, which is near the Wave Organ, about halfway between Gas House Cove and the St. Francis Yacht Club.  Check in is at the South End from 5:30-6:15.  Pilot briefing is at 6:15.

Our Next Out of Cove Swim is the Pride Swim on June 22, 2014

Our next Out of Cove swim is the Pride Swim on June 22 (Sunday)

This is a South End swim but Dolphin Pilots and Clothes Wranglers get a HELP. This is a Qualifying Swim for Golden Gate and Alcatraz.  Check in is at SERC from 5:30 AM to 6:15 AM.  Pilot briefing is at SERC at 6:15 AM.  Walk to Coughlin Beach to be there for the onsite swim briefing at 7:00 AM.  Jump is at 7:15 AM.  This swim isn’t timed, so enjoy the 3-knot tide ride.  There are only three more in-Bay Qualifying Swims (plus the Santa Cruz One Mile) before the GG and Alcatraz swims.  Sign up sheets for pilots and swimmers are posted in the usual place. There is a $10 fee payable to SERC for this swim.

Dolphins Victorious in Regatta

The Dolphin Club Rowing team in the Wieland sunday morning for the SERC Tom & Jerry’s 3-buoy regatta ~ we finished first, beating all other boats including the racing shells (not usually the case).

Total time around the three buoys in the chopping, breezy flood current was 42 minutes. The weather was sublime, cool with that bit of low-formed fog just over the water.

Crew as follows: Charlie McIntyre as coach/cox, Megan Wachs in Stroke, Lowen Cattolico in 5, Anna MacKinnon in 4, Chris Tschinkel in 3, Laura Zovickian in 2 and Dolores Meehan in bow. Also Kelley Heye and Andrea Fabian were in the chase boat taking photos and routing the team on for the whole race.
