Less than ideal...

Next Swim:
   Sunday June 22nd @ 3pm

Last Swim:
   Saturday June 21st @ noon
      Water Temp:  55.3
      Waves: rippled surface / slight current from south
      Air Temp:  64 & dense fog
      Clarity:  murky & unpleasant
      Crew (noon): Gumdrop, Showgirl, Neo, Nanook, David, Capt'n
      Skin / Suits:  1 / 5
      Pitsch:  3
      Crew (6pm):  Diablo, Gumdrop, Sketch, Andy, Capt'n

Cool air temps with even cooler water temps, dense fog and murky water littered with floating debris from the recent rains and unwanted seagull food made for some of the most unpleasant swim conditions that I can ever remember having in Lake Michigan.  Still the Kru was determined to log a swim today.  Kudos to Neo who swam skin despite the unpleasant conditions.  Kudos also to Gumdrop and Nanook (...accompanied by yours truly...) who logged an orange kayak swim despite the navigational challenges presented by the fog and aquatic obstacles.
