Simon Dominguez’ unprecedented swim 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 swim the length of San Francisco to the Farallon Islands solo. If successful, they will be the first swimmers to complete the Farallon journey backwards, starting at the Golden Gate Bridge and finishing at the Farallon Islands.
