Weekly Review/Preview August 22, 2021

Tuesday Morning With a Wonderful Crew!

Thanks for all the wonderful swimmers showing up last week. Despite the warm water Thursday (~70 F), waves were treacherous. We probably won’t swim when waves are 5-8 ft with chaotic swells.

Thanks to the Joshes for showing up Saturday and Sunday. Without you guys, I wouldn’t have gone out.

Saturday, with Josh!

Upcoming Week

As usually, we’re having Tuesday & Thursday swims at 7am. This means we meet at Tower 9 at 6:45 and are in the water by 7am.

Next, as the 7 am swim time works well for us on the weekdays, it seems to have caused a shortage of swimmers on the weekends. So, we will now switch to 8 am as the swim time on Saturdays and Sundays. We hope the later time on the weekends will make it more appealing for you.

Likely Conditions

Water temp peaked at 70 F Thursday. It was back down to 66 F Saturday and Sunday. So, plan on mid-60s for the next week and you should be fine.

Good news! Swells are abating. According to MagicSeaweed, wave height is forecast for 2-3′ Tuesday and 1-2′ Thursday. So, if you’re on the fence about ocean swimming, Thursday should be your day. It ought to be warm enough and waves are negligible.

We look forward to having you join us!
