Aquaboomers

From Openwaterpedia

The Aquaboomers is a record-setting Catalina Channel relay record comprised of Dan Leonard (Captain), Tracy Edwards, Brad Magit, Bill Ireland, Bruce Thomas and Steve Lowe who crossed from the California mainland to Catalina Island in 8 hours 8 minutes. Fellow SCAQ member Alicia Bartley was one of the kayakers, along with Beth Barnes, an experienced kayaker from Long Beach. Their support team included two members of the Mighty Mermaids, Jenny Cook and Christie Plank Ciraulo.

They broke the previous record of the men's 50-59 year age-group of the Swell Guys, initially set on July 8, 2002 from Catalina to the mainland in 10 hours 35 minutes, comprising of Steve Dockstader, Donald Van Cleve, Chris Wagner, Bill Kehoe, Warren Haviland and Rich Henry.
