Golden Gate Bridge results!

 October 11, 2014

Congratulations to all swimmers! All finished this race successfully, despite it being one of the toughest Golden Gate Bridge swims to date.

For once, the water out at the Golden Gate Bridge was calm, without its typical chop - but this was only false hope! There ended up being some incredibly hard and unexpected currents that swimmers battled all the way to Finger Point rock. They made today's winners swim about 10 minutes behind winners in previous years!

Despite that, it was all smiles aboard the Bass Tub and Chucky's Pride among swimmers, guests, and coaches alike, especially at a passing pod of dolphins and the sight of golden medals 🙂 Special shoutout to WWS member and Golden Gate Bridge finisher Maggie Tidmore, who swam for the National Parkinson Foundation and raised $3,700, over $1k more than her goal!

Note: David Swift and Ned Fluet were successful finishers in this race. We are assessing some corrections to their times and will update accordingly!
