Farallon Round Trip Attempt Sets a New One Way Record

Night Train

On April 25th  2015, Kim Chambers, Patti Bauernfeind, Simon Dominguez, Ashley Horne, Emily Kreger, and David Holscher swam in the worst conditions to the Farallon Islands yet. Escort swimmers were Kate Webber and Vito Bialla. Water Temp was 51.5 , wind 20 plus and waves to 8 feet. Total time from San Francisco to the Farallon Islands was 14:10:13, which set a new speed record. The attempt to do a round trip relay was aborted due to weather and safety. Swimmers are not able to board a boat at night in conditions like these.
