4,565 yds (2.59 miles), 1:33 moving time
Best way to beat the heat is by hitting the open water. The morning was overcast with mist. We started early at Long Beach and swam around Naples Island. Long swim. Lynda, Nicole, and James got an early start. Leanne, Steve and I took off at 7:00am on the dot. The fast guys started a few minutes after us. There were a bunch of scullers and paddle boards. There were some suspiciously warm spots as we made our way around the island; I tried not to think about it. When we finished, the tide came in really high. The water was up to the wall where we set our bags. Congrats to Leanne and James for their 1st time around the island!
