Jason Malick Is A San Francisco 49er

Jason Malick jumped off his escort boat right under the Golden Gate Bridge in the 49°F (9.4°C) water this morning and is now heading steadily to the Farallon Islands with the tides behind him.

Malick can be followed on his 30-mile attempt to become the first person to swim from the mainland of California, starting at the Golden Gate Bridge to the “most desolate islands in the Pacific“, the Farallon Islands, here via SPOT tracker.

He started about 1 am this morning California time under the command of Vito Bialla, but was pulled at 5:16 am for safety reasons after swimming for 11 nautical miles.
