Re: Who's been swimming already?

I spent 4 hours swimming in February as part of a drysuit test for a mag article. Does that count? It got boring, so I read a book while locking myself in position with my leg over an ice flow so I wouldn't drift too far.

Still waiting on the first no-drysuit swim. Maybe tomorrow.

We never quit but then again we don't count. Gulf of Mex in W. Central Fl.
Sometimes it gets below my bottom line of 72f but heck, I brave it and jump in anyway..

Re: Who's been swimming already?

Was working on my boat this weekend in Collingwood Ontario some local kids were diving in on the adjacent dock. I have the pictures but this website doesn't allow uploads here, at least I don't know how to.
