New Year’s Day Alcatraz

Dolphin Club swimmers participated in, piloted for and helped with the South End Rowing Club’s annual NYD Alcatraz swim. Due to foggy conditions on the Bay, the swim jump was delayed, then moved to the area off Pier 39, where swimmers were able to ride the ebb tide in to Aquatic Cove. The swim results were captured by SERC, and 8 swimmers’ times and places do not show up on the results.
