The swim conditions will be perfect sat and sun. The Boston buoy shows the water is still warm yet we’ll have sorta brisk dryish-air mornings as if caught between a euphoric blissful time and space between summer and fall. In other words that feeling southern Californians feel every day. Early birds are definitely meeting at 7:00 am on sat morning.
This weekend marks the halfway mark for summer swim season (fortunately not continues well into fall). Record water temps at 75 degrees, calm seas and clear skies are forecasted creating a perfect storm for ideal conditions both days. Meet at 6:30 or just before 8:00 both days. Enjoy…
Couldn’t ask for better conditions this morning. We’ll do it again next weekend.
True fact – according to scientists, if you start the day immersing yourself in ocean water under 75 degrees Fahrenheit for at least 30 minutes it optimizes your body temp for the entire day similar to how breakfast optimizes metabolism throughout the day. This leads to better memory, greater concentration, increased energy, and reduced risk of heart disease, diabetes, and arthritis. The practical implication? Swimming at nantasket Beach at 6:30 or 8:00 (get inside lot by 7:45 to avoid parking charge) for an open water swim is like taking a dip in the fountain of youth.
Water is 70, sun will be out and rise early, and ocean will be calm. If you haven’t tried ocean swimming this is the weekend. If you’re experienced, bring a friend. Have questions, let me know…
Short notice but sat june 1st will be an awesome morning to start open water season if you haven’t already. The surf was too good last weekend to pass up but with calm seas, conditions are perfect.
While whale and dolphin sightings can’t be guaranteed, you will definitely see some crabs with attitude. The water is still a bit crisp but really clear and the weather will be hot so come cool off and enjoy an ocean swim this weekend.
Meeting 8am both weekend days at the first entrance at Nantasket (or for early risers, I’ll be there by 6:30 am).
