Dave Holscher is an architect and a member of the Night Train Swimmers on the world's longest non-stop ocean relay swim attempt (339 miles or 545.4km) together with Phil Cutti, Patti Bauernfeind, Joe Locke, Kim Chambers and Zack Jirkovsky. He has also completed a Farallon Islands relay crossing with the Night Train Swimmers and assisted as a pace swimmer on other Farallon Islands' attempts.

Holsher began swimming at very young age at the beach in Southern California. He swam at Loyola High School so he could play water polo. After competitive sailing at U.C. Berkeley and then spending two years on the island of Pohnpei, he got back into swimming via triathlons. Then the pure form of long distance swimming took hold. Holscher is one of the first members of Night Train Swimmers that swam the English Channel in 2008. Other notable swims include: touching the buoy at the Farallon Islands to complete the relay swim in 2011 and winning the Mayors Cup at RCP Tiburon Mile.

SF to SB Relay

Holscher is also a member of the Night Train Swimmers that attempted the SF to SB Relay, the world's longest non-stop ocean relay swim attempt (339 miles or 545.4km) from San Francisco to Santa Barbara along the California coast together with Phil Cutti, Patti Bauernfeind, Joe Locke, Kim Chambers, Zack Jirkovsky, and crew Patrick Horn and Captain Vito Bialla between 23-28 September 2012. It was halted after 6 days due to bloom after bloom of venomous jellyfish.
