OPEN WATER swimming…But WHY??

Leave a Comment

For many years I have been an active member of the South End Rowing Club in San Francisco. I share my passion for OPEN WATER swimming with a very diverse group of cold water enthusiasts from all over the world. Here is an article written by Dave Ford in 2003 on Bay Swimming interviewing many of the South End Rowing Club members.
