Swimmers, Skin Swimmer, and Spectators

Next Swims: Wed 6:30PM, Thu 5:45AM - Klode

Last Swim: Tue 6:30PM
Water Temp: 46-51, depending on where it was measured
Waves: Calm
Water Clarity: Very clear
Crew: Gumdrop, Diablo, Cap'n, Blondie, Jon, Perry, Patriarch

It was too cold for Blondie, Perry, and I, but Cap'n, Diablo, and Jon managed a short swim despite the cold water, and Gumdrop performed another Amazing Iceman act by swimming without a wetsuit.

It's frustrating to look at the water temperature maps and see the lake covered in warm water except for a thin strip on the Wisconsin shore. Damn you, Wicked Witch of the West Wind!

Wow that was so cold, my lips were getting numb. I may need saving by a certified life guard if we do that again- H2 can save me!
