The Paddle Team: Steve Manis (Lead), Lane Manis (Sweep), Kelly Kinsman Minor, Mandy Hunter, Laura S Evans, Kristi Lee Schatz, Eion Sausaman, Ben Luis Brandao (Have Kayak Will Travel), and Joni Roberts.

The Swim Team:

Gian Bertozzi, Mike Kane, Nat Rosa, Kristin Keen, Sara Ann Hernandez, Chris Terzian, Shannon Nichelle McGrew, Ian Cherry, Lisa Broadfield, Jim Alabiso

Web page and Gallery.

On the first day of Spring, the March 20th Equinox, nine open water swimmers and seven kayakers made their way 2.3 miles down the St. Johns River from the Fuller Warren Bridge to Metropolitan Park Marina. The event took place at the peak velocity of the ebb tide. In addition, the storm system that passed just in time for the event, left us with over 30 mph fortunately at our backs. This resulted in our fastest St. Johns River Swim ever. the 2.3 miles was completed in 35 minutes! It was also reassuring to see that our safety systems worked perfectly when a kayak turned over. Our kayak escorts were on the spot and handled the situation perfectly. We utilized on-board floating tow ropes, personal flotation devices, marine radios and whistles. Kudos to the kayak escort tea...
