La Jolla Cove Swim Club has a “Big Chill” swim every year. “We swim through the winter and accumulate miles as a group towards a destination.

This year we are swimming to the Bikini Atoll and back,” explains Penelope Nagel. “On your birthday, you can double your miles by swimming naked – dubbed the pink dolphin.”
