Alcatraz is Saturday, September 19

Our annual swim from Alcatraz to Aquatic Park is Saturday, September 19.  This swim will be on a dying ebb. So get ready for a straight shot, or maybe a big “S;” it’s all up to the tides.  The tides, like the water temperature this year, have been unpredictable.  It was 69 two weeks ago and 62 this past weekend, when the flood was early and stayed late.
Check In from 7:30 to 8:10 AM, Pilot Briefing at 8:15, Swim Briefing at 8:30, Walk to boats at 8:45, Boats leave at 8:50, Jump at 9:20 AM
There is a $20 boat fee.  The two boats have capacity for 85 swimmers.  There is no capacity for guests on the boats.  The boat fee for swimmers will be paid at Check In.  Any excess capacity for swimmers will be on a first come, first serve basis at check in.

To do this swim, you will have completed 3 Qualifying Swims and Helped twice and your USMS membership will be current.

If you sign up and do not cancel by emailing at least 24 hours before the event, you will pay the $20 boat fee.
