Hello, Saltines! Here's an auspicious sign for our open-water-swimming this weekend: a double rainbow over the LIE! The West Neck Pod will be swimming at West Neck Beach on Friday morning at 6:15 on an incoming tide (low = 5:08 a.m., high = 11:04 a.m.), and on Saturday and Sunday mornings at 8:00 (low tides at 5:55 and 6:42 a.m. and high tides at 11:51 and 12:38 p.m., respectively). Great conditions for a Causeway swim (which was just sublime on Wednesday!). See you in the a.m.!
DISCLAIMER: Open-water swimming is inherently dangerous. Open-water swimmers risk drowning, hypothermia, hyperthermia, heart attacks, panic attacks, cramping, jelly fish stings, fish bites, boat or jet-ski collisions, collisions with floating or submerged objects (including other swimmers), and other calamities that can be injurious, disabling or fatal! The "West Neck Pod" is an informal association of open-water swimmers who swim "outside the lines" with no lifeguard protection, it has no formal membership, organizational structure or legal identity, and its participants, including the author of this blog, make no representations and assume no liability with respect to its group open-water swims. All swimmers who participate in West Neck Pod group open-water swims do so at their own risk. Be careful out there!
