Bright yellow silicone swim cap printed with dark blue CCST wave logo on both sides. The cap is seamless, rounded to fit over the head with the bottom edge curved twice for ergonomic fit.

This swim cap, along with goggles, 2002.26.2, were worn by the donor, Kathleen Wilson of Charleston, while successfully swimming the English Channel on August 25, 2001. She is the first South Carolinian to swim the English Channel and the 45th American woman to do so.
