New Years Day Alcatraz

The New Year’s Day Alcatraz Swim is one of the toughest of the year because of the low temperatures. The water can be lower than 50F, and so can the air. The tradition of a New Year’s Day Alcatraz mug started with Swim Commissioner, “Reptile” Tom Linthicum. Zina has completed four designs to date. These mugs are so sought after that when they break, South Enders have been known to travel to the printer, Access Uniforms, in Burlingame in search of a replacement.
