Like ChickenOSea Charter Member August 2012 Yeah FKCC one. Fun swim Like dc_in_sf Member August 2012 Thanks all.Just curious any specific reason to pick FKCC over the other one? http://notdrowningswimming.com - open water adventures of a very ordinary swimmer Like evmo Admin August 2012 I've also heard FKCC is the way to go, but never any reasons. Perhaps it has something to do with the note near the top of the FKCC page? "The Only Sanctioned, Insured and US Coast Guard Permitted Race around Key West" Like swimmergirl23 Member August 2012 I did the Swim Around Key West and I thought it was an excellent event, and they had a coast guard sanction as well! I've never done the FKCC so I can't compare the two. I will say the trophy from this race was easily the coolest one I've ever gotten! Like swimmer25k Member August 2012 The FKCC swim took over from Randy Nutt a little over 10 years ago and has the support of the USCG and Randy. The other group isn't as well organized and is more seat of the pants. Like Sign In or Register to comment.
