On September 23, 2012, six swimmers began swimming under the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, aiming to swim some 339 miles down the Pacific Coast to finish at Santa Barbara, California. The event was a co-fundraiser for Night Train Swimmers and Semper Fi Fund, which provides financial support for injured and critically ill members of the U.S. Armed Forces and their families.
On August 22, 2013, our team of six swimmers broke the world record for longest continuous relay by swimming from Point Conception to San Diego. The 228 mile ultra distance swim in 100 hours, 29 minutes eclipsed the existing world record by more than 20 miles.
