Aquatic Parade makes a splash for a cleaner bay

San Francisco Chronicle

A small platoon of water conservationists swam, sailed and paddled into McCovey Cove on Sunday, promoting efforts to clean up San Francisco Bay so that recreational sports clubs can keep using it. . . “That’s our swimming pool,” said Jeff Russell, who braved the chilly course in a blue Speedo. Russell chairs the board of San Francisco Baykeeper, the environmental group that sponsored the event.
