Doc Howard Gas House Cove & In-Cove Swim

Sign-up sheets have been posted for the Doc Howard Over 45 Gashouse Cove Swim and the Under 45 Cove Swims on Saturday June 29th.   

It’s a late afternoon swim with a BBQ afterwards. 

Gashouse Cove is considered a qualifying swim for Alcatraz and Golden Gate.  It’s also a great opportunity for under 45’s to get another help before Alcatraz and Golden Gate.  

Here is how the timing looks for the swims:

2019 Pride Swim

June 15, 2019

The traditional Pride Swim was hosted this year by South End Rowing Club (SERC) with the jump at Coghlan Beach.  The finish order and the times were not important enough to capture since this swim was for fun and based on the smiles on the faces of the swimmers, all of whom finished, the swim was a great success – so was being greeted by a shot of Irish Coffee at the end.  Swimmers, like the pilots and the helpers, are listed in alphabetical order: all Dolphin swimmers finished and were recorded with a qualifying swim for the Golden Gate and for Alcatraz.
