Unlike 2016, we weren't slammed with 5 foot seas, a gale force wind warning and a small craft advisory. We actually had perfect weather... although we would have been okay if the water temps were slightly lower. Swimmers did have to fight a strong outgoing tide crossing the bay though. We're waiting until month end [...]
Weather is looking good for the 8th annual event! 170+ swimmer are registered to hit the water. Please support by donating in honor of a fallen warrior, or towards a swimmers fundraising efforts.
