Event Founder, Robert C. Placak (RCP), presents his 13th Annual RCP Tiburon Mile, an open water swimming competition from Angel Island to Tiburon, California, one nautical mile. Over 90 Olympic, World and National Champions participate. Because of the distance and seasonal timing of the race (post Olympic, World and/or Pan Pacific Championships), many pool swimmers test their mettle against open water elites. Male and female winners each receive a $10,000 prize. This is a Gold Medal Media, LLC production. SwimSwam Partners, LLC work with the RCP Tiburon Mile team to promote this elite competition and report the race results.
