Open Water Swim: June 29, 2008 at West Neck Beach

I think we set a record today for Huntington Masters Swimmers and Triathletes swimming together in Cold Spring Harbor -- launch point for some 35 plus swimmers was our old friend West Neck Beach. Conditions couldn't have been better with high tide, calm water, NO boat traffic, almost no jellyfish, air temperature around 75 degrees and water temperature somewhere in the 60's. 

I had a new camera with me -- supposed to be waterproof -- but since I literally just got it, I was afriad to try it in the water on the first day out however, the new camera worked and you can view the results below -- be sure to look for Nancy's pretty PINK Cast -- she's been swimming with it for the last month or so:
