This is either an awesome idea or completely mental. I got an email from SPMS (Southern Pacific Masters Swimming) about the Naples Island swim in Long Beach this Sunday the 14th. There’s a 3 mile and a 1 mile race and even though I’m not really an open water guy this sounds like a pretty cool event.
You can see in the map below that the course is about 1.25 miles and runs around like a canal or something. This event was supposed to happen back in July but was delayed until now.
Online registration is open until the 10th, I’m going to decide between now and then whether I’m going to do it and whether I would actually like… survive. If you’re interested the site for the event is www.naplesislandswim.com.
