Wind Beats Sun

Next Swim:  Wed 6/20 6AM

Last Swims:  Mon 6/18 6PM, Tue 6/19 6AM
Water Temp: 49!
Waves: small
Water Clarity:  Excellent
Mon PM crew:  Diablo, Mike, Diamond Dave, Kelly, Gumdrop (not sure I got everyone)
Tue AM crew: Gumdrop, Showgirl, Brain, Kahuna, Diablo

You would think the long hot sunny days would warm the water, but apparently the sun was overwhelmed by the strong offshore winds that bring up the cold water from the bottom.  Diablo set a new record for skin swims, swimming at 49 degrees and beating his previous record of 50.

If the warm water won't come to Patriarch, Patriarch will go to the warm water.  I'll be in Door County Wednesday and Thursday, and if the maps are correct the water temps on the Green Bay side of the peninsula are much warmer.
