"Rough Water Swim" Fort Lauderdale Sports & Outdoors Tip by Dabs
Fort Lauderdale Sports & Outdoors: 8 reviews and 11 photos
My husband seems to be able to find a swim race or triathlon no matter where we go, sometimes we plan around it, this time I was debating between two dates for the cruise and he found a swim race in Fort Lauderdale on January 7, 2012. That swim race was cancelled and then he found another swim race so he ended up doing a mile swim, The International Swimming Hall of Fame's Fort Lauderdale Rough Water Swim. He ended up doing it again when we returned in 2013.
The race started at Terramar Street and ended near the International Swimming Hall of Fame. Although it was billed as rough water, the ocean was very calm that morning. Most of the participants were college age or younger and they seemed to be from all over the country, not just Florida.
After the race we met up with David's high school swimming coach, Jon Erikson, who lives in the Fort Lauderdale area. He was the 1st person to do a triple crossing of the English Channel in 1981., pretty amazing!
