We always have ‘help’ opportunities and remember you will need 3 to qualify for the Golden Gate Bridge and Alcatraz swims.   And we need help at the following posts:

 

Clothes Wranglers – 3 needed; more makes it more fun.  Plus, you get to park in the Dolphin Club driveway.  Terry Horn terryhorn@sbcglobal.net

Check In – Eric Shupert – Eps307@hotmail.com

Timing – Polly Rose    tvwasok@earthlink.net

Galley – Sibylle Schulz sibylleschulz@gmail.com

Clean up – Neil Powers nipowers@earthlink.net

Please contact these people directly.

 

The fine print: If this is your first swim of the year, the check-in desk will collect the $50 swim fee from you.  Finally, if this is your first 2017 swim AND you are not a member of the Dolphin Club, please bring a copy of your USMS card.

Pier 39 Swim

February 18, 2017

The winner and only swimmer to complete the out of cove course said this was the hardest swim he’s ever done. Conditions were not the same as they were during the test swim: the ebb created a strong back eddy that acted like a flood, making it very difficult to swim beyond the start of the breakwater on the outside, so all swimmers after the first were directed to swim inside the breakwater. Many made strong efforts but eventually were pulled. As such, all but the swimmer who was pulled in the first 15 minutes were given credit for a qualifying swim.

Our neighbors at SERC were in the water at the same time and helped with our swimmers, as we helped them with theirs. Thank you SERC. When the risk becomes high, rivalries are put aside. Good job to all!
