Put May 28th on the Calendar

IMG_2787

Time to scrape off the crusty barnacles, dried seaweed and sea salt still clinging to your goggles from when you last swam in the ocean this past Fall. Hopefully everyone enjoyed the winter, but it’s time to break free from the pool and get back in the open water.

May 28th, the Sunday before Memorial day, is the best day to kick off the season at 8:00 am from the usual location at the start of Nantucket Beach. If anyone wants to join an early bird swim or get out on the Sat or Monday of the holiday weekend, send me an email or let me know in a comment below.

Water temps are finally creeping up. In a few weeks it will feel like a hot tub for Kimberlee, Ted and Chris and it will be very comfortable in a wetsuit for the rest of us mortals as the waters will no longer be anything like the nor’easter surf pictured above. In the meantime, enjoy the technicolor-green tree leaves all this wonderful rain is gifting us.

  1. I’m running the Narragansett Bay Half on Su 5/28, but I’d drive up from New Bedford to swim on either Sat or Mon if there are others swimming.
