New Year’s Day Cove and Alcatraz results

January 1, 2020

 The New Year’s Day Cove was enthusiastically swum by those wishing to greet the new year in the usual Dolphin Cove fashion – swim to Eppelton Hall, or swim to the flag, or swim all the way around the cove.  No registration required, no place or time kept.

The annual New Year’s Day Alcatraz swim, run by South End Rowing Club, had terrific conditions: minimal tidal action, low wind, and sunny day.  The following is the order that the Dolphins finished, with the “place” column indication where in the 100 swimmers from both the DSBC and SERC they finished.
