Dave and Mike met up with new Lake/Ice Monster Helen earlier today out at Tower Beach. Helen first gave it a whirl in her wetsuit, but then decided to forego the neoprene altogether for a 5 minute swim – which probably felt like an eternity in the 33F lake!
Regardless, since you got in a swim in the sub-35F zone, you’ve earned your Ice Monster stripes, Helen!

English Channel Mike and I met Helen at Tower beach and we were both very impressed how easily Helen handled the 5 minute swim as the east winds blew ice into our swim area .
Helen plans to return to Chicago and school us on cool water swimming in only a swim suit !
