The following report is from Rob Ripp via a Saturday email:

Just got back from the Little Red Light House swim. They call it that because at the base of the GW Bridge, there is a little red light house. Race goes from 56th to the GW Bridge. Today conditions were good. Water temp about 72. Minimal wind until the end. No chop or swells. Slight tide assist in the begining of the race.

Course: 5.8 miles
Winning Time: 2:01
My Time: 2:04
Placed 35th out of 255 entrants; 191 finished the race
How I feel: Tired

Likelihood I will been seen at WNB tomorrow: Not likely
But next weekend if it's nice, def want to continue outside. Hopefully see some of you then.
