A VERY hot and humid day, but fortunately no storms.
Austin took the day with a sub 5 hour swim. Jaimie shaved over 25 minutes off of her previous best, and Matt nailed an impressive reprise of his 5:10 time.
Ellen dug deep and fought the current at the end (as Rose did) to successfully complete an epic swim.
Overall, a great day on the water. Can’t imagine a better way to celebrate Rose’s achievement on the actual date of her swim 105 years after the fact.

We had some serious chop and wind out there on event day…
That said, we still had some of the fastest times ever!
Our winner, Shane, ties Simona for the record. (Simona: 4:34:02. Shane: 4:34:10)
At 4:43:00, Liz sets a record as the second fastest finisher.
We also had our first ever relay team. All hail “Lady Rose’s Riverters” at 5:25:19!
Alan swam breast stroke like a champ, and put up a heroic battle against the current and crazy wind at the end.
We would love to hear your experience of the day!
