Portland’s Bridges Draw Serious Swimmers
The Portland Bridge Swim, nicknamed Marisa’s Bridge Party, was started in 2011 by Marisa Frieder with just a few swimmers. It was cancelled last year during the swim due to dangerous weather conditions, so this year there were 60 individual swimmers and 10 relays involved. Swimmers and their escorts left the dock in waves. Water temperature was between 780-790 [taken at the Morrison Bridge]. Photos came from Brad Bachulis and from an unknown source.
