La Jolla Cove Swim Club’s


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.


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.
