Swim event in La Jolla scheduled for Aug. 2

The La Jolla Cove Swim Club is hosting its 11th annual Tour-of–Buoys Ocean Swims on Aug. 2 at La Jolla Shores immediately north of the boat and kayak launching area. The featured five-mile ocean race is over two laps of the buoys course and all swimmers must be individually escorted. An additional 1.5-mile course is offered monitored by kayakers.

Though a club event, it is open to nonmembers for a small fee.

The competition will be organized in five-year age/sex groups: 18-24, 25-29, 30-34, etc. Five-milers will start no earlier than 8:30 a.m. The starting time for 1.5-milers is 9 a.m.
