Creek Swimmers Brave Cold Monterey Bay August 1-2

Thirteen WCM swimmers competed in the August 1-2 Santa Cruz Pier Rough Water swim and/or the 2 mile Cruz Cruise. Three intrepid teammates swam both races: Kildine Harms, Dave Matthews, and Peter Guadagni.  Winners in their age brackets included Don Brown, Donna Monroe, and Peter Guadagni. Our fastest swimmer was Chris Bond, who raced around the pier in a fast 18:48. This year the water temperature was a frigid 56 to 58 degrees.
