Doc Howard Over-45 Gas House Cove Swim is Saturday, July 11

Come for the swim, stay for the BBQ. The Doc Howard Over 45 Gas House Cove swim is Saturday, July 11. Last year, the wind blew so hard that we swam a tough in-cove course around buoys and under piers. This year is anybody’s guess. But, we will be jumping into the water at 6:00 PM sharp. A BBQ follows the swim. Check-In: 4:15-4:55 PM, Pilot Briefing: 5:00 PM, Swim Briefing: 5:15 PM, walk to Gas House Cove: 5:30 PM, Jump: 6:00 PM; BBQ after. This is one of only two club swims remaining in the season that count as a Qualifier. You need three Qualifying Swims and two Helps to swim Alcatraz and Golden Gate. (Tahoe Relay and both days of Santa Cruz Pier are Qualifying swims too.) If you need a Help, and are under 45, this is a great opportunity to log a Help and have some beer and BBQ.  All are welcome. (USMS is required for swimmers, but guests can be USMS-less.) And, in case you missed it, there is a BBQ afterward. Come down, have fun. Doctor’s orders.

Dolphin Club Pride Swim – June 21, 2015

The annual Pride Swim is a fun swim, so it is not timed, nor is the finish order captured. This year, all the swimmers who started the swim finished, and have been given credit for a qualifying swim toward the Dolphin Club Alcatraz and Golden Gate swims. All pilots and helpers likewise have been given credit for a help toward the Alcatraz and Golden Gate swims. Great swim, and great fun – a swim to be proud of, that expresses our collective pride in the diversity of our great club, city, and Bay Area in general.

Pride Swim is Sunday, June 21

Get a jump on Pride Week on Sunday, June 21 with our annual Pride swim.  The last few swims have been floods, but this time we go the other way on a 3.1 knot ebb.  Nice ebb, nice time, nice friends. The jump is from Pier 39.  Check In: 6:15-6:55 AM, Pilot Briefing: 7:00, Swim Briefing: 7:15, Walk to Pier 39: 7:30, Jump from Dock: 8:00.  This swim isn’t timed, so stop and enjoy the scenery, and paddle around with your friends. Costumes are welcome, as long as an orange cap is incorporated.  SE is invited to join, so there may be some yellow caps mixed in.  Swimmers must have 2015 USMS membership.  This swim counts as an out-of-cove qualifier for Alcatraz and Golden Gate. “Helps” count too.
