New poster for the Dolphin Club’s Yacht Harbor swim. The swim & poster was a big success. Temperature was the biggest challenge. Took me about 50 minutes and that was definitely past my comfort zone–I was a drifting ice cube at the end. A month later and it’s still unusually cold in the bay.
Last week I came in first in the Crazy Cove swim! What? That’s right… well, I swam the short course (3/4 mile), and it was a confusing route, mostly goofing off as the name suggests. When I guy like me can come in first you know something’s wrong but I’ll take it. I heard reports of the temperature as low as 51 degrees F for that evening swim. The delicious BBQ that followed was great!
