The east winds appear to have brought back our pleasant water temps and the pleasant air temps appear to have brought out near record crew sizes.  Sunday's crew size of 22 was our largest of the year and may have tied our record for largest crew without having a special event (...such an advertised rare appearance by the Fine Wench...).  Pockets of warmer water (70+?) were encountered during both swims over the weekend.  Perhaps a sign of what's to come?

...also noteworthy from our weekend swims....with Saturday's swim, for the first time this year our total skin count for the year has surpassed the total wetsuit count.  Following this morning's swim the counts stand at:  Skin Count 230 / Suit Count 227.
