Today's conditions would have made for a fairly challenging Big Bay and back swim so we're hoping to give it another go Sunday morning at 8am.  This morning the Kru opted for a Deadwood (Mudslide) and back swim instead.  Swimming north there were a few instances where you felt like you were going nowhere...but going south felt nearly effortless.  The water was considerably clearer and warmer further out from shore.  With the east winds and waves rolling in perhaps the warmer water will grace our swim tomorrow.
