Lake Champlain, Vermont ICE SWIM
This spring boasted chilly temperatures in the air and water, perfect for an Ice Swim
We motored out to measure the water, Booby Roberts rocked the boat support…
Average Temp of 4.96 Celcius Time to gear up!
The Challenge 1 mile swim in water 41F/5 C or below, the coolwater a BIG motivator to SWIM FAST!
Game face on, I grit my teeth and plunge in, I’m off…
Cynthia Needham guided me by kayak….
My heart thumped hard to keep my core warm…
I swam with all my might, the boat crew cheered as is I got close, Tricia Kules from Little River Land Surveying was measuring the course, head down and swim on until 1.1 miles was complete WAHOO!
Margaret Haskins wrapped me up once I hauled up onto the boat..
SUCCESS Now time for Hot Chocolate and to REHEAT!
What a blast, thanks International Ice Swimming Association for the cool certificate and patch and to all the crew who helped support this icy dip!
