Bob’s Dreaded Nighttime Swim

42 nd Annual

What – 1 mile open water swim in the dark on the full moon in August.
When – Thursday, August 11, 2022
Cost - Free!
It is that time of year when insane people swim from La Jolla Cove to La Jolla
Shores Beach in the dark on the full moon in August.
All the victims, I mean participants meet at the lifeguard tower at La Jolla
Cove at 8:45 for the course talk.  At 9:00 pm we will enter the water at the Cove
and swim to the 3 bright lights on La Jolla Shores Beach. The swim is just under
one mile.  Return is your responsibility.
This is a great experience. (If you make it)
Feel free to invite your friends.  (or enemies)
Warning – This swim is not for the faint of heart. Sharks
have been sighted in the area of the swim.  There
are NO support people.  You may get separated from
the main group and find yourself alone in the dark
water.  Do not do this swim unless you are a strong
swimmer and fearless. 
Not sure about the water temperature so you may need a wetsuit.
You may wear fins if you wish.
No RSVP necessary, just show up.

Feel free to let others know about this. 
PS Big fish feed at night!
PSS You do not have to out swim the shark, you just have to out swim
the person next to you!  (Don’t worry, Bob is a slow swimmer)
