Jim Zinger prefers swimming in frigid waters without a wet suit near a famous prison over confined and chlorine-infused pools.
The Naples man — who turns 77 on June 12 — completed the same feat May 25 that he did 12 years prior by swimming the two-mile stretch of water that connects Alcatraz prison to mainland San Francisco.
Zinger fell in love with open-water swimming years ago.
“You don’t have to stop and turn like you do in a pool,” Zinger said.
