WWS Alcatraz Swim with the Centurions
This weekend I volunteered on the Water World Swim 10th Annual Alcatraz Swim with the Centurions. It was pretty spectacular, with over 200 swimmers jumping off the ferry! The fog had subsided but it was a little windy, and that means choppy waters. It was one of the roughest Centurions swims ever, which makes the finish even that more gratifying. The first one to shore was Richard Clark, wetsuit division, in 27:41, followed by Zebron Lemke in the more prestigious non-wetsuit division in 29 minutes. Full Results. We had a great volunteer team and stellar coordination this year. Click on the photo above to see more of my snapshots of the event. We also had several professional photographers that will be posting their photos there.
