Next Swims:  Thursday and Friday July 14th and 15th 6AM both days

Last Swim:  Wednesday July 13th 6AM
Water Temp: 46 "Baltic!"
Waves: Calm
Water Clarity: crystal
Crew:  Diablo, Panini
Suit/Skin: 1/1

While a bunch of us whined and whimpered about cold water temps from shore, Diablo and Panini stepped up and got er done.   You guys are amazing.

Normally the temperature measured at Atwater buoy is very close to what we measure on the beach.  But yesterday and today the buoy temp is 20 degrees more than the beach temp (mid-sixties versus mid forties).  The buoy is three miles south and half a mile offshore of the beach, but can there really be that much difference?  Apparently so.

Panini is organizing a purchase of Klode Kru silicone swim caps. The caps will have a skull and crossbones, the words "Klode Kru" and be personalized with your name or nickname.  Several Kru members already have these caps, if you want to see what they look like.   The caps will cost $20 each (they don't really cost that much, the balance will go in the Killepitsch fund).  The color choices are to be determined.  If interested in ordering caps email Panini here and give her your chosen name/nickname and color preference.

P.S.  Capt'n, you would look GREAT in pink.

P.P.S.  Showgirl, we miss you and hope you're having a great vacation up north with your boyfriend (or as Panini so delicately calls it "sex with room service").

FYI, I think the last Baltic day was Memorial day!
