Another Record

Next Swim: Monday 10/17 5:30PM

Last Swim: Sunday 10/16 4PM


Water Temp: 56.2
Air Temp: 57 (felt cooler with the wind chill) & Sunny
Waves: calm
Water Clarity: good
Saturday Crew: Diablo Gumdrop, Capt'n

The records for the Klode Kru seem to be pouring in these days. Water temps rebounded nicely Sunday to a very modest 56.2. (55.8 from Klode's southeast beach) This is typically a temperature the crew would climb into their wetsuits at. But with Diablo egging us on we all decided to give it whirl skin.

Unlike other skin swims at cooler water temps in August and September there were no thermoclines with warmer pockets of water to offer us reprieve from the cool water and what felt like cooler air temps. Once we got started our bodies surprisingly adjusted quite well to the water as we logged a leisurely swim journey from Klode's southeast beach up to Garage before returning to Klode's southeast bay and then debating whether to exit the warm(er) comforts of the Lake vs the relentless cool breeze waiting for us on the shore.

In terms of records, obviously this marks the latest in the year that the crew has swam skin but it also marks the coldest water temp that we've swam skin in. Of course this is until Diablo eggs us on again at our next swim...
