It’s been 3 weeks since we started Cabo, and the MAACSwimmer has swam 726 miles and is now swimming in the ocean off the coast of Baja California near El Marron. Keep up the great work!! Only 490 miles left to swim before the Cabo Party on June 27th!
June 7th was MAAC’s 2nd annual rafting trip! 14 people on 2 boats enjoyed the beautiful day on the river and also enjoyed a nice BBQ potluck at Orange Blossom Park. It was a blast!
It’s a Team Event…you can be one of the lucky supportive participants to help ?MAACSwimmer? get to Mexico. The cost is just $15 per member and you will receive a ?Never Before Offered? MAAC Logo Water Bottle. But better than that…a ?Mexican Fiesta? Party will celebrate our BIG SUCCESS! Register on deck with a coach and begin to rack up those yards in the pool…adding to your own personal mileage until June 27th. Our goal is to have a total team tally to equal the distance to the tip of Baja California!
Our Team Yardage Goal – MJC to Cabo; 1473 Miles = 2,533,560 yards 50 Swimmers @ 51,100 yards…so accept this fun fitness challenge to say,
343,900 yds= 195.4 miles (just outside of Bakersfield)
284.2 miles (Ensenada, Mexico)
TOTAL: 479.6 miles
