Expired 2023 EFA Aquathlon (kayak/SUP)
- June 10, 2023
6:30 am - 10:00 am
This event is part of the overall Escape From Alcatraz Triathlon weekend. It takes place the day before, on Saturday morning. Competitors will take a short swim from roughly Coughlan Beach (near the SF Yacht Club Marina entrance) to St. Francis Beach, for a total distance of 750 meters. It is just like the final leg of the Escape. We will set up a cordon of paddlers and ensure that swimmers don't wander out into the bay or get too close the breakwater wall. This is a great chance to practice up for the Escape the next day!
We will be able to park and setup at the Wave Organ Parking Lot next to the St. Francis Yacht Club. You will need a parking pass! Watch for updates as we get closer to the event.
Paddlers will be paid $125 for this event, and you MUST bring your own kayak. Loaner kayaks are ONLY available for the main Escape From Alcatraz swim the following day.
Our launch point, and the swimmer's finish line, will both be at St. Francis beach.
Please review your responsibilities as a kayaker before signing up. Updated details on meeting times and locations will be emailed to you. Please be aware your start time may be earlier than listed.
