Swim Report – September 17, 2010 – Sunny and choppy!

Dave, Carol, and I met out at L1 for a late morning swim today. We were joined by new Lake Monster Mike a short while later.

The official water temperature came in at 64F – the same as the air temp. The swim area was quite agitated with some 3-4 foot, high volume swells that created a bit of havoc on the south end of the wall by Oak Street Beach. In light of this, we stayed out about 50 feet from the wall and turned back around Ladder 13.

Even with these less-than-calm conditions, the clear skies and plentiful sunshine made swimming quite comfortable without a wetsuit. For those of you who couldn’t make it, we will be out tomorrow at 7:00am!

Mike – Lake Monster #84 and esteemed English Channel crosser (congrats!)

    holy cats ! we were graced with an English channel swimmer. As you can clearly see, he is almost as tall as the John hancock building so crossing the channel for him would be like us swimming to the beach and back !
    i vote that mike is the #1 lake monster in our super elite devision. ( i just added this new catagory)
