Schedule

4:45-5:15PM Meet up and Gear up

5:30PM – Near Shore & Long Swim Groups leave to swim 1/2 to 2 miles

Swim Info

This swim is open to all. HOWEVER, to ensure the safety of all members, adult swimmers joining the ocean swim should have basic open water swimming skills, experience, and comfort and be able to swim 500 yards uninterrupted & unassisted.

As with most group workouts, there will be a variety of abilities/pace. The entire group will start together, regroup after the break. From there, the breakout groups will form:

Near Shore Swim

If you are relatively new to ocean water swimming but do have open water experience (bay, lake or river), this is a perfect group to be with. Volunteer Chip Slack with help from others will be leading this group.

Exact swim distance will vary depending on group pace, proficiency and swim conditions, swims will be in the 1/2- 3/4 mile round trip and will parallel the beach.

Advanced Swim

For those comfortable in the water and looking to start the week off with quality swim mileage, this is the group for you. This group will be swimming to the ½ mile buoy, ¼ mile buoy, or the cove and back (depending on swim abilities and conditions).
