Vince has been swimming competitively since high school, in his high school swim team and in a summer team as well. In the late 1990's, he started participating in triathlons and open water swimming. Some of the well known open water swims were the Alcatraz Crossings and the Golden Gate Bridge Swim. His more recent swims include the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Swim (a 4.4 mile open water swim) and a 2-mile open water swim with the Santa Cruz Masters in Santa Cruz, California.
His goal for 2014 is to train for a 10K open water swim that will take place in August/September. The water temperature is expected to be approximately 60-65F.
