65!!

Next Swim:  Wed 6/25 5PM

Last Swim:  Tue 6/24 5PM
Water Temp:  65, which felt very pleasant after all the cold water we've experienced thus far
Waves:  Calm
Water Clarity:  Poor, somewhat gunky from all the rain runoff, and still some dead alewives floating around
Crew: Nannook, Patriarch, with a guest appearance by Andy
Wetsuit/Skin Count: 0/2
Pitsch Count: 0

Finally!  Warm water!  My first skin swim of the season.  We were put off at bit by the gunky water near shore, but the warm water lured us in.  We speculated that perhaps the water was cleaner further out, but the very heavy fog kept us close to shore.  Hopefully the warmth will stay and the gunkiness dissipates.

With the warmer water perhaps we can try early morning swims again.  Please comment if interested.

Nice and warm on Wednesday morning. 60.4 at the rock pile. A little foggy, but you could see 200-300 meters. Oh yeah. There was some goofy sign about closure due to ecoli.
