Fort Point is Sunday, June 14

Our longest swim of the season is Fort Point and it is June 14.  Over 3.5 miles of 3.0 knot flood and an orange cap will bring you home after a boat jump.  Check In: 6:15 to 6:55 AM; Pilot Briefing: 7:00 AM; Swim Briefing: 7:15 AM; Walk to Boats: 7:30 AM; Boats Depart: 7:45 AM; Jump: 8:15 AM.  There is a $20 boat fee.  If you do not cancel in advance, you will be charged the boat fee.  Email DolphinSwimCommissioner@gmail.com to cancel in advance.  To swim Golden Gate or Alcatraz, you must finish three out of cove swims and HELP on two club swims.  Including Ft. Point, there are 5 club swims until Golden Gate in which you can get a HELP. Including Ft. Point, there are 3 DC out of cove swims (4 if you are over-45) until Golden Gate.  Trans Tahoe and both Santa Cruz Pier days count this year for out of cove status, but you must provide proof of completion. Make your plans now to be sure you qualify for Golden Gate and Alcatraz.

100 Mile Swim Begins June 1

Our annual 100 mile swim begins on June 1.  You have until 11 PM on October 31 to log your miles in the usual spot on the usual boards using the usual colored pencils.  Extra credit (but not extra miles) for good penmanship and use of color. While there is no award for first to 100, there is an award for most miles.  The water is warm (57 degrees on May 31), so sharpen your pencils and your swimming skills.

Crissy Field is Sunday, May 31

2.5 miles on a 2.3 knot flood.  Crissy Field is our next swim, on Sunday, May 31st.  Check in: 6:45-7:30 AM, Pilot Briefing: 7:30, Swim Briefing: 7:45, Walk to Boats: 8:00, JUMP OFF SAID BOATS: 8:45.  This swim has a $20 boat fee.  Please cancel by emailing DolphinSwimCommissioner@gmail.com or you will be charged the $20. Better yet, don’t cancel, enjoy the tide ride.  The Bay has warmed up, so you have no excuse. (Doyle Drive will be open after all, so that excuse is gone too.)

To swim Alcatraz or Golden Gate, members must have 3 qualified out of cove swims and two helps.  Only 3 more Club swims in the Bay (4 if you are over 45) before Golden Gate.

Polar Bear Challenge Results

The Polar Bear results are correct to the best of our knowledge: if there are questions about them or changes that need to be made, contact the Dolphin Club Swim Commissioners.  Those who completed the challenge are listed in order from the member who completed the greatest distance, to the least qualifying distance. If multiple members completed the same mileage, the members are listed in alphabetic order.
