Bill’s 30 Swims in 30 Months: “Welzien Swims 30 for 30!”
Shortly after the 2006 Swim Around Key West, Race Organizer (and 4-time Swim Around Key West Winner) Bill Welzien had an idea: to swim around Key West once a month, every month for an entire year. Bill ended up continuing past the year, swimming around the island once a month for 2.5 years! The streak ended on December 27, 2008.
