The unofficial Aquathon didn’t happen as scheduled on September 10, due to a request from the Laguna Beach Lifeguards, who were expecting large surf due the hurricane off the coast of Baja California. Well, that didn’t keep a group of about 25 from showing up on Saturday morning, Sept. 23, to continue the annual tradition! Starting from Crescent Bay at 9 a.m., they swam and trekked down the coast of Laguna Beach, pausing at Woods Cove, before the long swim to Victoria Beach and finish at Aliso Beach. It was a beautiful morning with calm seas.
