Last October Dave Van Mouwerik swam a loop from Aquatic Park, San Francisco, out and around Angel Island, and back to Aquatic Park. His documentation is now published here:

Dave's epic, beautifully written personal narrative is especially worth reading, skip directly to it here.

The RTAI is one of the more challenging 10-mile swims around, with strong cross-currents along most of the route, cold SF bay water, windy afternoons, and lots of traffic competing for the same shipping lanes.

Dave is the 11th individual to complete this swim since 1984 - the full list can be viewed here: https://db.marathonswimmers.org/events/round-trip-angel-island

Congrats, Dave!
