La Jolla Rough Water Swim postponed

Due to the ongoing construction of La Jolla Cove lifeguard tower, the 84th La Jolla Rough Water Swim (LJRWS) scheduled for September will be postpones to 2015.

Bill Perry, LJRWS media relations representative, said in a statement, “Originally, the City of San Diego’s construction schedule projected completion prior to our event but this is no longer the case. This is the first time since 1959 that we have been forced to cancel our event and we are all very disappointed. Alternative venues were considered by the Operations Committee, but after polling a random sampling of past entrants and committee members, the consensus was to postpone the 84th Swim until 2015 rather than organize a sub-standard event.”
