2013 Bushtukah Bring on the Bay - 3km open water race results

Wow, now that was fun!!!

11 sharks swam the 3km race (the beaver hanging out near the shoreline stayed behind!), and a big congrats is in order for all! The weather was wonderful, the water was warm, and the event was amazingly well-organized. And we swam really, really well! Special recognition goes out to the newer swimmers in the club who had never done an open water race before, it takes guts to jump in there and give it your all, way to go!

Mike / Pierre / Laura / Reid / Diane

Next year, let's plan ahead and do some training together for the event - open water is new to most of us, and there's lots of room to learn new skills and improve on your existing ones. And, have a great time training with your fellow team mates!

Wave 1 (men) set off, Wave 2 (ladies) waiting on the dock.
Getting ready to head in...
Heading up the red ladder finish line. Those ladies look familiar?
In a fun turn of events, Candace and Lois came in 0.04 seconds apart,
and neither knew until they were on the dock!
