On this past Sunday, Sept 11 2022, the La Jolla Chapter of Kiwanis International successfully ran The La Jolla Cove Swim, the successor to the infamous, La Jolla Rough Water Swim.

Roughly 500 swimmers gathered, from all over the globe, to compete in this year's, one and three mile tourneys, and during every race, Windansea Surf Club paddlers were there to keep competetors safe and on course!

A special thanks to all who volunteered their time this past Sunday!

First and foremost, thank you Chris Nyhan, who not only paddled, but provided transportation for many of the Club volunteers from The Methodist Church to The Cove and back to the church,(See above image). I think Chris Nyhan's Club name should be "Anytime Chris", because anytime you ask him to volunteer, he never let's the Club down!

Thank you in no special order:

Chuck Davey

Cadu Viella

Jackie Fitzmaurice

Chip Hasley

Cal Hoar - Club Applicant

Ben Coulange

Jim Neri

Nick Torres

Steve Sullaway

Mark Feigen

Foster Thomson

Mark Ruyle

Sam Armstrong

Bill Fitzmaurice

And Last, but denfinatley not least, Jason Tuschen

I also want to thank Penelope Nagel, who got two of her long distance swimming friends, Jen and Kai Anderson, to volunteer with the Club.

Thank you:

Jen Anderson

Kai Anderson

All in all, we had a really good showing, and next year I hope that we can double our ranks.

Again, thank all of you for your dedication to The Club, to surfing, to building a positive image and for supporting our communitees and organizations that support the needs of kids!
