Mid Summer Viking Swim

Next Swims: Friday 7/22 5:45AM and 6PM

Last Swim: Thursday 6PM
Water Temp: 48.8
Air Temp: 86
Waves: Calm
Water Clarity: Excellent
Viking Crew: Diablo, Riptide, Capt'n with special guest appearances from The Patriarch, Crash, Steve, Gui, Don and Viking Dipper Jeff (aka Jack Frost)

Good news is that the water temp is heading in the right direction....1.5 degrees warmer than this morning! Bad news is that the majority of this evening's crew members still abandon ship.

Despite the cold water temps, 4 of us attempted to walk the plank this evening without wetsuits for a Viking swim along Klode's south beach....3 of us succeeded in completing the challenge. While technically there are no rules for what constitutes a Viking Swim...the general guidelines call for at least a 50 meter swim without a wetsuit in sub 50 degree water.

Tomorrow's weather forecast calls for winds from the east....perhaps the warm water will return tomorrow?
