Washing Machine

Next Swim: Tuesday 6/28 6:30PM

Last Swim: Mon 6/27 6AM
Water Temp: 62
Waves: Heavy Chop
Water Clarity: Clear
Crew: Cap'n, Kahuna, Beth, Patriarch

Not a day for a sensitive stomach. We were tossed, turned, churned, slapped in the face, and put through the spin cycle. Impossible to get any kind of rhythm going. It didn't matter which direction we were going in. Still, we had a good swim to the Silver Spring drain pipe and back, if you didn't mind a little queasiness, that is.

Can any of you guys recommend the best place in the Milwaukee area to buy a wetsuit? It's for my father-in law. Anyhow, hope to be back swimming with you guys soon.

A few of the crew members have bought their suits from Wheel-n-Sprocket and Emery's.

If you don't mind shopping online you can score the Captn's personal favorite (...and arguably the warmest & fastest wetsuit in the world...) the Desoto Black Pearl from
