The buoys are set! We had a handful of delightful folks enjoying perfect conditions…79F water, clear skies… just look! Thank you to Nancy C. and Craik D. for their help with setting the buoys with their SUP’s!
JCC’s new pool will not be ready till Labor Day. Please begin discussions amongst yourself about how we would like to utilize the outdoor pool available to us now at JCC, and the lake!
Saturday at 7 AM, I will be setting the three orange swim buoys at Biltmore Lake. If you would like to come join me for our first open water swim of the summer, please do. If you have a friend with a paddleboard, have them come, too.
Please make sure you sign in with an emergency contact number. We always watch out for each other there, and swim olwith a buddy. At end of your swim, please sign out. Having a proper body count is very good👏🐠
Recent UNC-Asheville graduate Alexandra van Dorsten gave the swim crowd what it needed today, and we are so glad to have you with us this summer! Thank you for agreeing to help us out! Here is her first workout.
Here are some links to fins that might be comfortable, all with a heel strap, NOT the traditional shoe-style.
, haven’t swum with them yet, but these’ll be my next pair…
I’ve used the Voit Duck Feet
for 35 years (3 separate pair), and they start stiff, but loosen up over the years. I’d recommend ’em. I have a long and short blade pair, short blades are more flexible.
The Churchill fins
are classic, I’ve got an old pair now that are at least 25 years old and super flexible.
Lastly, these are really light and comfy: Zura fins
Here are the last three workouts, written:
Since we are usually outside everyday this time of year we’ve not had to make these adjustments with club teams, but Thursday we’ll need to exit Asheville School at 7am, as Asheville Swim Club will have their entire group there then. We are glad to do this to share the space.🐠🐬🐙😀
Today we had 20 strong! Kudos to our new swimmer, Robbie, a serious Search and Rescue diver honing his swift water rescue skills. And welcome to Morgan and Alexandra!
Here are three recent workouts from the past week…
Nutrition specialist and world class swimmer & coach Claire Maust McDaniel came by to coach today😊🐬🌴🐠We had 19 in the water!
Gene K. (r, with friends) won the old guys age group 2.5 miler at Lowcountry Splash Charleston…Congratulations!
This was the workout on Sunday at the JCC! Beautiful water temperature, 76° and sunny. Delightful.
