To accommodate the varying skill levels of all swimmers, we will have
distance workout options:
.5 mile, 1.2 miles and 2.3 miles (give or take 10% error). The 1.2
swim will be one loop around the triangular course and the 2.3 mile swim
will be two loops. We will begin the workout promptly at 9:00 a.m. and
should conclude no later than 10:30 a.m.
Park." Follow the road past the stadium (3 Com, Candlestick, whatever

Since this is not a race, there is no race fee charged. However, there
nominal fee of $3 for SFBSA members and $5 for non SFBSA members. This
to offset the cost of mailings, copying and providing kayak support when
necessary for your safety.
For this swim, we will have two kayakers in the water. The water
temperature will be about 52 degrees and there will be no current. A
suit is strongly recommended unless you've been practicing without one
Water depth in most of the cove is less than 5 feet. Should you have
problems, simply stand up and call for help.
After the swim, there are NO changing facilities. Please ensure that
bring a warm change of clothing. And take it from experience - absent
sauna in which to warm up, you are strongly encouraged to bring a
hot tea or broth. Bringing a pair of running shoes and going for a
10-20 minute run is also another excellent method for warming up.
This promises to be another most enjoyable morning. If you have friends
are Masters Swimmers and might be interested, please pass the word on to
The objective of SFBSA is to provide safe and inexpensive opportunities
improve your open water swimming skills and to gain confidence. Our
"workouts" are not races and you do not have to be good, fast or an
hopeful - you just have to have a desire to swim in the wide open water.
I look forward to seeing you on the 13th.
