Unprecedented solo swims to the Farallon Islands

In 1967, Lt Colonel Stuart Evans became the first swimmer to complete the crossing from the Farallones to the California Coast, finishing at Bolinas, Calif. Since then, only three other swimmers have completed the crossing, two of whom made it all the way to the Golden Gate Bridge.

Night Train swimmers Simon Dominguez and Kimberley Chambers each plan to be the first swimmers to complete the Farallon journey backwards, starting at the Golden Gate Bridge and finishing at the Farallon Islands. 

Simon’s swim is scheduled to start at around 11PM on Tuesday July 28th.  Live tracking: http://nighttrainswimmers.org/live-tracking/ 

Kim’s attempt will take place in a couple of weeks.

Donations to Night Train Swimmers will go to Bay Area charities including Night Train’s swim program benefiting hundreds of at-risk kids.
