Flying From Bridge To Bridge In The Bay

Flying From Bridge To Bridge In The Bay

Back on a bright sunny day during the summer of 1997, a quartet of fast swimmers from the Olympic Club – Corinna Seibt, Jim Murray, Mike Cooley, and Stephen Grant – flew from the Golden Gate Bridge to the Bay Bridge in San Francisco Bay.

As they navigated the tricky tidal flows of the Bay as they swum parallel to the escort boat of Captain Mike Yost and his First Mate Nicole Yost, the swimmers traversed 9 miles across the bay in 2 hours 47 minutes.
