Farallon Island Relay

On May 20, a new record was set when a team of six swimmers completed a non-stop relay from the Golden Gate Bridge to the Farallon Islands, approximately 30 miles offshore. With the average water temperature around 52 degrees, the swimmers battled hypothermia, rough sea conditions, and of course the knowledge of the types of aquatic wildlife found in the Red Triangle. The team set a new record for the relay crossing at 14 hours 45 minutes.
