Swim Report – June 9, 2024 – Lake Monster Milestone!

With the summer solstice almost upon us, the days are the longest and the sunrises are the earliest this time of year. But despite the 5:15am meetup time, we still had great turnout last Sunday with perfect swimming conditions. The lake came in at 62.4F (in swim) – roughly in line with the 58F air temp – and we had a perfectly calm lake coupled lots of late spring sunshine. I went in with just my cap and jammers and did a point-to-point 1/2 to the beach.

Despite the super early swim time, we had quite the crowd with several OWC regulars showing up as well as a number of new Lake Monsters. And most exciting, we finally surpassed the 600 Lake Monster mark. Thanks to everyone who has come out over the past 16+ years – it’s hard to believe we’ve been at this so long!
