Avila Beach was warm, calm and sunny with a water temperature of 60.5 degrees. We had a big crowd today; Niel, Rick, Duke, Sara (who was visiting Avila from the bay area), Ali, Kurtis, Jon, Stephen, Mary, Will and Dan. We swam the triangle clockwise at a fast pace.
Dave Van Mouwerik Swam the Semana Nautica 10k today. No results posted at this time.
Rob swam a fundraiser in Humboldt Bay today. This was a tide aided 4.5 miler.
You can see a news clip about it here
and see Rob doing his famous chicken dance. Watch for his post about his swim.
I'm interested in doing the Santa Cruz 1 Mile Rough Water Swim again this year. It is on Saturday August 2nd. $35 before July 25th. This is a Masters swim so if you want to enter, get some of the great swag they give away and to have a time posted you need to be a member of Masters and do the swim without a wetsuit. There are always some people who don't enter and go with the rubber. The water temperature in Monterey Bay has been 58 -59 degrees so this would be a good year to do this swim. I'd do it as a day trip from SLO and car pool.
