Start of OWS 2007

The start of the OWS season is upon us. First swim will be Saturday May 12th, 8am at West Neck beach.

Swim route is below with the meeting place for anyone new to the West Neck beach OWS scene.The planned route is just over a mile but depending on interest or coldnest, we can scale that back at the time. ( 1920 yards are marked in red ).

Water temp is low 50s so its wetsuit time unless you are really crazy. ( e.g I am definitely wearing a wetsuit ). Please remember to bring WARM after-gear. Double swim caps are advised as well.

See you all there
