With the exception of last year (...due to the warm spring/summer...), water conditions like the present are typically very rare.  While I haven't checked back to our blog posts prior to 2012 I would guess you can probably count on one hand the number of days where we have recorded a water temp on the plus side of 75.

Further adding to our delight are the calm & clear water conditions we've enjoyed during the past few days.  Indeed...the water conditions are spectacular at the moment!  ...come out and enjoy it while it lasts.  :)

HI I am new to the area and Erin at Triwisconsin gave me you website. I am a beginner openwater swimmer and would like to improve my skills. It looks like you swim almost everyday. Can I come join you? Can only more experienced people come? Let me know

Hey Ted and Greg! I am planning on being there tomorrow morning if all is still on. I might bring a buddy along if he can manage to wake up in the morning too. Thanks for coordinating these, it's awesome. See you in the morning!
