Friday Gladstone's Swim

Weekly swim (parallel to shore, up and back) in the cove along PCH between Gladstone's Restaurant, Coastline Drive, and the Charthouse. In the winter, we swim to Coastline and back (1.3 miles). We meet at 6:30, and start the swim a few minutes afterwards.

In the summer, most people swim all the way to the Charthouse and back (2.4 miles), while a smaller groups swims to Coastline and back (1.3 miles)

In the summmer, we start the swim at 6:30. Please make sure you get there at or soon after 6:20, to be ready at 6:30.
