We’ll be meeting at the usual spot at Nantasket Beach in Hull at 7:30 AM, leaving from the usual most south-eastern point on the beach (first beach parking lot on the right when driving into Hull). We’ll plan on a swim along the coast given the expected relatively smooth, yet still rougher than normal predicted conditions. The caveat is that, due to popular demand, if we have enough enthusiastic kayak or paddle board friends along with us we can consider a swim to Gunrock Beach and back.
Because it falls on 9/11, we’ll be dedicating the swim to our friends, family, responders and victims who lost their lives, honoring all those whose lives to this day remain impacted, and reflecting on how fortunate all of us are to still have the freedoms we can sometimes take for granted.
As always, safety is our number one priority. Have a look at our Tips & Safety page for a quick refresher and a great article that was just posted to the site that is a must-read cautionary tale.
