OWS Routes

I have placed a new image of three routes with resonable distance measurements. The new arials are taken in summer and have the bouys if you look closely.

Route #1 (Red Marker 3). From the beach to the bouy at the bottom of the picture ( normal bouy we swim to ). Round trip is 1.02 miles. Normal time is anywhere from 12mins to 18 mins each way. ( 24 mins to 36 mins )

Route #2 (Red Marker 2 ). From the beach to the bouy at the bottom of the picture , around the bouy head to the top left bouy and back to the beach. Round trip is 1.3 miles. Times for the trip are from 40 mins to 60 mins.

Route #3 (Red market 4 ). From the beach to the top left bouy , around that bouy and head to the bottom bouy. Return the way you came.. Round trip is 1.6 miles. Times for the trip are 50 mins to 70 mins.

I will post a few other routes that are different another day.
