For veteran, experienced swimmers in the Bay Area, last Sunday gave them the opportunity to take part in Envirosports’ 6th Annual Golden Gate Sharkfest Swim, spanning the entire Golden Gate Bridge water.
On Sunday, participants boarded a ferry in Sausalito which took them to the Bridge’s south tower where together they swam back past the north tower, finishing at East Fort Baker, Horseshoe Cove, Sausalito. Checking in at Gabrielson Park by Sausalito’s Yacht Club early in the morning, the ferry set out at 8 30 and swimmers set off to the sound of the horn blast at 9am.
They received the Sharkfest T-shirts together with snacks and drinks. And then there was the awards ceremony for the top three finishers in each age group and division (wetsuit and non-wetsuit).
