Swimmers Dive in for Coastline Crawl


Organizers of this year’s Aquathon, an Emerald Bay to Ritz Carlton coastline race on Sunday, Sept. 11, are forecasting calm weather.

The next swell isn’t expected to arrive until Monday, Sept. 12, said “aqua-guy” organizer Gary Cogorno.

“We expect a calm ocean, two foot, with the customary late afternoon wind push to help us around the TAB (Three Arch Bay) south point all next week,” he said in an announcement this week.

A buffet line awaits swimmers, walkers and stand up paddlers, who will be met by Ritz staff to transport boards, he said.

“I believe that should be all that needs to be said,” said Cogorno, who is looking for a successor to organize next year’s event. “Scott and I would like to ‘retire’ after serving as your non-directors the past decade.  Please let us know who wants to carry-on the tradition.  We will of course continue to help.”
