Former Cal Bear Breed Takes 45 Mins Off Angel Island Round Trip Women's Record
SWIMSWAM
July 14, 2020— Former Cal distance standout and U.S. National Team member Catherine Breed took 45 minutes off the previous women’s record for a round trip swim to Angel Island in the San Francisco Bay Monday morning. The course begins at San Francisco’s Aquatic Park, and most swimmers go clockwise around the island. The route crosses two major shipping channels (going out and coming back, so really, four times) and is largely cross-current. Breed completed the 10-mile swim in 4:45:50, well under Erika Shanahan Gliebe ‘s 5:30:01 record from just last month (still pending ratification).
