Summer is winding down and the days are getting shorter (boo!), so let's meet at 5:00 instead of 5:30at the large viewing platform *see photo and map below. Note, we're generally prompt about the swim so, it's good to arrive a few min early. :)

Distance: For as long as you can stand it.

Water temp: Will likely be around 55 / 60 degrees F

*No lifeguard will be on duty. This meetup is swim at your own risk.

Wetsuits are recommended. Since the water is cold, it is recommended you are an experienced swimmer or have done some open water swimming. Wetsuits or not, all welcome to take the plunge for as long as you can handle it. Always a fun time.

If you are acclimating to cold water here are a few tips:

Bring something hot to drink right before and right after

Bring warm dry clothing you can change into right after your swim.

Don't stay in too long if you are really cold :-)

Some athletes like to wear neoprene caps when getting used to cold water.
