Golden Gate Bridge Swim – Sunday August 19

Sign-up sheets have been posted for the Golden Gate Bridge Swim, Sunday, August 19, 2018.  The swim will be limited to 99 swimmers.

This swim has a water start (from a boat) with the end of a flood, through slack and ending with the beginning of the ebb.  After finishing, you will board the boat and wait until all swimmers have finished – there will be hot chocolate etc.  We start from the south of the bridge and swim north.  The length is a little over 1 mile.
