Sign up sheets have been posted for the Doc Howard Over 45 Gashouse Cove Swim and the Under 45 Cove Swims on Saturday July 7.  It’s a late afternoon swim – There will be a light dinner 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:

Over 45 Gas House Cove:

3:30-4:15 pm                   Sign In

4:15  pm                          Pilot Briefing

4:30  pm                          Swim Briefing

4:45  pm                          Walk to Gas House Cove

5:30 pm                           Jump

Under 45 – Three Possible Courses: Cove (1 mile), Flag (1/2 mile) or Eppleton Hall (¼ mile)

3:30-4:15 pm                   Sign In

4:15  pm                          Pilot Briefing

4:30 pm                           Swim Briefing

5:30 pm                           Jump

We always have ‘help’ opportunities – You will need 3 helps to qualify for the Golden Gate Bridge and Alcatraz swims – So get them checked off early!

We will need help at the following posts:

Clothes Wranglers –     4 needed; the more the merrier.  Bonus: you get to park in the Dolphin Club driveway-

Terry Horn                                  

Check In – Eric Shupert             

Timing – Polly Rose                   

Galley – John Hornor                 

Clean up – Neal Powers            

Please contact these people directly.

For Gashouse Cove swimmers, if this is your first swim of the year, the check-in desk will collect the annual $50 swim fee from you.  If this is your first 2018 swim AND your membership is listed with a club other than the Dolphin Club, please bring a copy of your USMS card.
