100th Anniversary Joe Bruno Golden Gate Swim

September 16, 2017

A truly wonderful swim was enjoyed by all the swimmers, and all of the watchers: the pilots, the helpers, the invited guests. This was a complex swim, administratively, but the reward for it, the ceremonies and food afterwards, were terrific. So many people worked hard and helped make this anniversary great, but special mention must be made to thank Duke Dahlin for his organizational work, Joe Omran for the special food and work in the galley, and Kent Myers for the fantastic poster.  Thanks also to all of our returning champions: men and women who have won the swim in the past.
