La Jolla Cove Swim Club’s

“GREATERMAN” SWIM

Sunday, September 7, 2014

(The day the Gatorman would have been…if it hadn’t been cancelled!)


WHEN: Sunday, September 7, 2014 at 9:00 AM

WHO: Members of La Jolla Cove Swim Club and anyone else who wants to.

WHERE: Swim from the Cove to Scripps Pier and back, 3 Miles

WHY: Due to construction at the Cove, the La Jolla Rough Water Swim, which includes the Gatorman 3 mile swim, is cancelled this year. So some of us will do this swim on the day it would have been, because we’re programmed that way.

COST: Free.

START: We’ll have an “unofficial” start at 9:00 AM.

TIME: We’ll keep “unofficial” time for those who care. If you want to know your time more exactly, take your own stop watch.

SAFETY:

The La Jolla Cove Swim Club does not assume responsibility for your safety during this swim. You are responsible for your own safety. If you haven’t done a swim of this distance previously, we recommend that you not do it.

We may (or may not) have a couple Kayaks out there for safety, but there’s a lot of water between the cove and pier, so you can’t assume that they will be near you if you need help.

We’ll tell the lifeguards that a bunch of people will be swimming to the Pier and back

Wear a bright colored cap so you can be seen more easily.

It is recommended that you swim in pairs or groups.
