Bay to Breakers Swim

37.7749° N, 122.4194°

“Well before the crack of dawn and long before the gorillas, centipedes, nudists and floats line up along Steuart Street to run or walk from one edge of San Francisco to the other for the 92nd annual Bay to Breakers footrace, 15 swimmers will make their way down to the Embarcadero promenade and plunge into 52-degree water at the foot of the Bay Bridge promptly at 5:00 a.m., Sunday, May 18, just as the ebbing tide peaks at a roaring 5.7 knots.
They will swim non-stop for two to three hours from the Bay Bridge to Ocean Beach, a distance of 10 miles (16 kilometers), in nothing but Speedos and swim caps. They will swim past the piers of Fisherman's Wharf, past Alcatraz and under the Golden Gate Bridge, to the same beach that will greet tens of thousands of Bay to Breakers foot racers.
This world-class swim is organized by the South End Rowing Club” -- PRNewswire, May 15, 2012
