After Saturday's swim the ~2.7mile swim from Anita Rock to the club was a relative sprint at around 35 minutes.
I took a very outside line, hoping to get a strong push from the flood tide, but then came back in at the far out buoy to find Bobby Knight and Cara Nazor in front, with an inside line. Sue Free had vainly tried to get me to follow her rowboat to the perfect line, but I was not to be deterred from swimming out as far as possible, and covering some extra distance. I'll know better next time.
Cara is one of those annoyingly talented swimmers with perfect technique and a long lazy stroke that makes it look like they are not doing anything, compared to my splashing and thrashing around. Very fun to have her there showing me what it's meant to look like.
Bobby will have to reveal the secrets of eternal youth, and I couldn't catch him in the cove, as we came into the club.
A great club swim with over 30 swimmers, who all made it back in, and enjoyed a hearty breakfast. The new zodiac proved itself on its first club swim. Bobby started the engine first time, and we overtook poor Joe in the older model as we motored up to Crissy Field and the start on the beach next to Anita Rock.
John W was piloting and Darren was in Austin, TX. Looking forward to Candlestick next weekend.
