    June 11th is when triathletes from around the world will Escape from Alcatraz - a 1.5 mile swim from Alcatraz Island to the San Francisco shoreline.

    Water World Swim is recruiting kayakers and SUP paddlers to help these triathletes make it safely from Alcatraz to St. Francis beach on the first leg of their race. If this is your first event, you are welcome to sign up. You will receive instructions before the event, an extensive briefing that morning, and there will be lots of help on the water.

    You'll get paid $125, and we'll provide a kayak for you if you don't have one. If you refer your friends to us, you’ll receive an extra $25.

    If you have questions, please email me at patrick@waterworldswim.com and feel free to pass this along to your friends who might be interested.

    Paddlers will    launch from Aquatic Park    and    finish at St. Francis Beach

    Please review your responsibilities as a kayaker before signing up.
