The Amazing John from Las Vegas

Next Swims: Tue 6pm, Wed & Thu 5:45AM

Last Swim: Mon 6PM
Water Temp: 52! (but it was a few degrees warmer, not much, away from shore)
Waves: Calm
Water Clarity: Good
Crew: Gumdrop, Diablo, Patriarch, David, Jeff, Slip&Slide and two of his friends, and The Amazing John from Las Vegas

John swam in 52 degree water without a wetsuit like it was nothing. I kept thinking he would pay a heavy price for his boldness, but he wasn't even shivering afterwards. Gumdrop didn't wear a wetsuit either, but even he had to turn at Garage while John kept going. Wow!

The fact that I swam shorter was due to planned recovery, not coldness. It was also quite therapeutic chilling my legs in the significantly colder bay afterwards
