Day 2 of 2014 Swim Camp
Last night Gary arrived and this morning swam with Cathi. Cathi hasn't swam more than a mile in open water before and this would be a new PR for her. She's a backstroker so she swam the whole thing backstroke. She didn't even wear goggles. Problem is she could sight very well unless the kayaker was at her 7 oclock almost behind her so she could see her out of the bottom of her eye, as she was looking up. She would keep her eyes closed rather than use goggles to keep the sun out. Made for a very wavy course to say the least. Karl's wife Char paddled for them.
After we got back Joelle and I turned back around and swam out to Cathi while Sarah paddled. She had never paddled before and wanted to see what she was asking Steve, her husband to do. When we got back to Cathi we swam backstroke together back to the finish. I was glad for the change of stroke, it was fun.
After this swim we had lunch, broke camp and said our goodbyes. It was such a fun weekend!
Total for the day: 3.25 miles
