On a cloudy Sunday Swim, a few of the Club swam around Naples Island in Long Beach, CA. A day following Cool Breeze Century found a few less swimmers than usual. We started from Belmont Shores in Long Beach, then went around the Naples Island. The water temp was 67 – 72F, which felt fine to me. Other guys felt it was cold, but I’ve felt this swim on much colder days. I hung back with Mike, who hadn’t swam this far before. He got about 2000 yds into it and hoofed it back to the start. I wore a bright cap and a bright buoy, which made it easier for Mike to follow me. There were odd warm spots along the big stretch before the main bridge; wasn’t me! There were a bunch of dragon boats and scullers and kayaks. Everyone was out and about. There was also a big swimming event at Belmont Shore. Some of our friends were competing in that race too. Mike Lucero came in top 10!
