With ocean swimming veterans like Alex Kostich, Parks Wesson, Bryan Buck, Bill Ireland, Lyle Nalli, and Ryan Ballance competing in the annual Naples Island Swim & SUP, a 3-mile circumnavigation race in Long Beach’s Alamitos Bay, there were a lot of drafting, positioning and tactics involved.

It is great to see a race that is so competitive, but where so many people know each other and can compete in a friendly atmosphere.
