9 swimmers with support of The Dauntless and 4 kayakers set out to swim from Candlestick Point to Mile Rock (15 miles) or until their arms fell off. After the Bay Bridge 5 swimmers remained. The water was cold due to snow runoff. Our non wetsuited swimmers could not stay in as long. The rest of the 5 made it as far as Alcatraz before the current switched directions stopping them dead in their tracks.
