Swimmer Wins All-Time Polar Bear Title

IN BRIEF / SAN FRANCISCO

March 23, 2004|From Times Staff and Wire Reports

In the winter swim season that ended Sunday, George Kebbe logged 356 miles in the frigid San Francisco Bay.

In other words, he'd be just about in Los Angeles by now if he'd been swimming straight.

The 51-year-old Kebbe broke the Dolphin Club of San Francisco's mile record and took with him the all-time Polar Bear title.

The Polar Bear group, of which Kebbe is a member, swims from Dec. 21 through March 21, when the bay's temperature often plunges into the 50s.
