RCP Tiburon mile

On Sunday 19th August Stefannie Gillespie (Zenith) competed in the RCP Tiburon mile (it's actually 2.2k as it is a nautical mile) where she swam from Angel Island to Tiburon across the Raccoon Strait next to San Francisco's famous Golden Gate Bridge. 

This is billed as one of the world's premier Ocean swims due to the high level of athletes who participate.  The RCP Tiburon mile has many famous Olympians and the World's best Open water swimmers participating in it. Stefannie finished an amazing 6th fastest woman edging out the Open Water World Champ medalist and 2018 European 25km gold medalist Arianna Bridi as they ran up the finish line.  Stef did an amazing job in a very fast race with low water temperatures of 15 degrees and very poor visibility.
