Big Results for Team blueseventy in Open Water

Clear skies and beautiful Lake Tahoe hosted the annual Trans Tahoe Relay race this year. The Olympic Club has hosted the event since 1976. Originally the race consisted of 2 teams from the bay area going head to head for the win. The modern relay format adopted by the Olympic Club is an 11.5 mile swim where 6 man teams compete against each other. Each member swims a 30 minute first leg followed by additional 15, 10, and 5 minute legs if needed until the course is completed.

This year the lake conditions were perfect for racing. Team blueseventy, shown above, had an impressive performance finishing second in the team division. Congrats to Team blueseventy!
