We are talked about. A lot. And held in pretty high esteem from the shores of San Francisco to global waters. From the achievements of our coaches and swimmers to our support of other Bay Area events, top media outlets know Water World Swim is on the front lines of getting dreamers - from seasoned pros to open water beginners - across the finish line in life-affirming events and experiences.

And maybe into a couple publications, too.
