    How to Swim an Alcatraz Clinic June 9th 2023

    This is part of the "Escape From Alcatraz" week of events leading up to the "Escape Triathlon" on June 11th.

    Swimmers will board a boat and be taken to the drop point see the landmarks, currents and sights they will encounter on race day.

    Some swimmers will make a "practice jump" to acclimatize to the water and practice a swim start.

    After about 10 minutes Paddlers will corral the swimmers back to the boat.  Swimmers are NOT swimming the entire course.

    We will paddle (or possibly load sups or kayaks onto a RIB and then taxi) to near Coglan's beach/ Wave Organ/ St Francis Yacht Club.

    Swimmers will Jump again and swim from Coglan's beach (aka The Wave Organ) to the finish then return to the boat.

    Paddlers then will return to Aquatic Park.

    Paddlers will    launch from Aquatic Park    and    finish at Aquatic Park.

    Some Paddlers May be able to ride on the RIB boat to the launch and to the finish.

    Please review your responsibilities as a kayaker before signing up.
