The swim conditions at Klode this weekend were absolutely superb!  Water temp readings have now registered in the low 70's since Friday evening on both The Patriarch-o-meter and my trusty Macho Meter 2000.  Water clarity has also been exceptional with the perfectly rippled and weedless sandy lake bottom visible regardless of how far offshore or near shore you swim.  By comparison, the water temps were also in the low-mid 70's at Pewaukee Lake for the Triathlon Sunday morning.  Unlike the Lady of the Lake who maintains pristine swim conditions and water at Pewaukee was brown and weedy with there being seldom occasion where you could see your hands below you much less the lake bottom.  ...indeed, there is little doubt where the best place to swim is at moment!  :)

Taking advantage of the exceptional swim conditions the Kru completed a Big Bay swim adventure on Sunday.  Klode Kru members completed the 1.25 mile swim from Big Bay to Klode while others made a round trip voyage.
