Bay Bridge is Sunday, May 10

The Dolphin Club Long Course begins May 10!   Bay Bridge to DC is 3+ mile swim. The water is still cool, and so are the sites to see when you breath on your left.

This swim starts off the back of a boat, so there is a $20 boat fee.  Please read the Boat Policy below.  This swim also has a maximum time limit, detailed below.

Check-In: 5:30-6:15 AM
Pilots Briefing: 6:15 AM
Swim Briefing: 6:30 AM
Walk to Boat(s): 6:45 AM
Boat(s) Depart Dock: 7:00 AM
Jump Off Boat: 7:45 AM

BOAT POLICY
We reserve 1 or 2 boats for this swim.  Since we pay for a boat, even if we do not use it, please do not sign up unless you know you will be swimming.  If you must cancel, please email DolphinSwimCommissioner@Gmail.com at least 24 hours in advance of the swim.
If you do not cancel in advance and do not show up, you will pay the $20 boat fee before your next swim.  (Boat fees will be collected during the swim registration.)

If you are unsure if you can make it that day, but hope to, please sign up under the “Tentative” column on the sign up sheet.  We will accommodate as many of these people as we can, based on the order in which they check-in.

MAXIMUM TIME LIMIT
Given the current, the distance, commercial boat traffic, and the water temperature, this swim has a 90-minute maximum time limit.

Yacht Harbor, Saturday, April 18

Pier 39 was last weekend, Yacht Harbor is this weekend.  Last weekend you took two lefts to get home. This weekend you will take two rights.  Check-In: 7:30-8:15 AM, Pilot Briefing: 8:15 AM, Walk to Yacht Harbor: 8:45 AM, Beach Jump!: 9:30 AM.  The northwest winds are back and churning up the deep, cold water.  We have a 3.3 knot flood, so prepare for cooler than this year’s “Polar Bear” water and a quick ride.  Food, festivities, and friends follow the swim.

Pier 39, Saturday, April 11

Pier 39 is Saturday, April 11 with an 8:30 AM jump.

Registration: 6:30-7:15 AM, Pilot Briefing: 7:15 AM, Swim Briefing: 7:30 AM, Walk to Pier 39: 7:45 AM, Jump: 8:30 AM, Swim past fat sea lion on the last dock: 8:32 AM

This is a quick swim involving two left turns and a 3.0 knot ebb.  We jump on the East side of Pier 39, not on the side with the tourists and the sea lions, but one lonely sea lion will be lounging on the dock to see us off.  Probably the same one as last year.  A very mellow fellow.

USMS membership is required as is the annual DC Swim Fee of $50.

Sign-up sheets for pilots and swimmers have been posted at the Club.  Swimmers are capped at 90, or fewer if we do not have enough pilots to cover our ratio of 3:1 swimmers to pilots.
