The 17th RCP Tiburon Mile from Angel Island to the shoreline in Tiburon was aired on Comcast, DirecTV, Dish, Dish Hopper and AT&T last week.

Race founder Bob Placak says, “The 2018 race saw the best of pool swimmers and open water swimmers compete in the world’s premier international open water swim race where Olympic gold medalist Ferry Weertman sprinted to win and reigning FINA 5 km world champion Ashley Twichell claimed her 4th career RCP Tiburon Mile victory.

Interviews with the elite athletes from Mexico, Australia, Italy and the USA are included with some aerial footage and on-the-water views of a race that came down to the very end.”
