Last summer hurrah swim

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.

How ocean swimming is like breakfast

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.

Crabs with Attitudes Spotted at Nantasket…

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).
