Bits And Pieces From The Farallon Islands History

Bits And Pieces From The Farallon Islands History

Photo of Lieutenant Colonel Stewart Evansswim cap modeled by his son-in-law Bruckner Chase with his daughter Michelle Evans-Chase. The swim cap was used in the first crossing from the Farallon Islands to the California mainland in August 1967.

Additionally, a comprehensive Observer Report by Evan Morrison on Craig Lenning‘s swim was posted on the Marathon Swimmers Forum here. We love it how the real speed of the swimmer is tracked and documented showing how the ocean can easily influence an open water swimmer with a steady stroke.

June 4th 2011 video of the 16 hour 29 minute relay of Patti Bauernfeind, Cathy Delneo, Laura Vartain Horn, Melissa King, Kim Chambers, and Lynn Kubasek relay to the Farallon Islands is below:
