From page 1 Avalon Hospital for many years who even helped deliver Martina Machado, one of the swimmers, 21 years ago when she was born. Kleinman has had pancreatic cancer for several years and has miraculously managed to survive this deadly disease. Some of the swimmers had a short swim in the dive park, a couple swam to Hamilton pier but surprisingly 15 of the 20 swam to and from Frog Rock, a 2.2 mile swim. Monica Canby, a nurse at the Island's hospital, made the round trip in 61 minutes while the majority of the swimmers took 85 minutes. Every swimmer received a neo- prene swim cap and net gear bag that was donated by the swim's sponsor, Xterra Wetsuits. Any swimmer who thought they would lose weight after their rigorous swim was sadly mis- taken by the breakfast table Santa Dominguez had prepared that included bagels, cream cheese, doughnuts, fruit, coffee and cream. Registration of swimmers, log- ging the swimmers in and out of the water and set up was done by a host of volunteers. Everyone had a great time and "Let's do this again next year" was the general consensus. So next year, Art Festival Weekend, join the swim at 7:15 a.m. at Casino Point for the third annual swim. Hot water was available for participants in the pancreatic cancer swim after they emerged from the chill waters of Catalina Island. Photos by Shauna Norfleet Warm water feels refreshing after a brisk swim in the Pacific Ocean. Catalina Islander's Recreational Summary i1 H |!
