Escape from Alcatraz is this Sunday. Wish me luck!
SF forecast that day calls for clouds, a high of 61 and a low of 54. Water temp should be about 55 degrees. Brrrr.
I'm going to check the tide table to see if the current will be a help or a hinderance. Evidently, when the tide is rushing out, the current travels at about 7-8 mph. That may sound slow, but it isn't when you only swim about 2+ mph.
My start time will be between 7 and 7:06 am...actually, all of us will be starting then. Eeek.
