Swim vacation?

For those of you un-afraid of swimming without lane lines and chlorine, there are two great open water swims in the Caribbean coming up this fall. One is in Bermuda (October 20th), the other, Bonaire (November 10th). Both are great events--I'll be swimming the 10k's, but there's also a 1 mile, 5k and everything in-between. Beautiful water, well-organized races, and drinks with umbrellas--what's not to love?

Evening Practice Hours

For those of you who don't know, our evening practice hours have changed. MWF practice begins at 8pm. Many of you that were polled have expressed a desire to go back to the previous (7:30pm) practice schedule, stay tuned to see what happens. As of now, plan on coming at 8pm. Morning TTh and Sun practice times remain the same. Ignore the YMCA program guide, it's riddled with misprints we are trying to have corrected.

Roosevelt Island

Anybody interested in getting some practice dives in off the blocks at Roosevelt Island? Mondays at 7pm, who's game? Post your comment here! We will be meeting there Monday 10/15 at 7pm instead of at Vanderbilt. The pool is next to the tennis courts (look for big fluffy cloud). The rec center is a red brick building--entrance is near the back towards the East River.

If you've never done a pool meet, now's the time to give it a try! It would be great if we could get a whole big group together (I get lonely with no one cheering me on the blocks!) Here's some of the upcoming events....the first one is coming up soon. So let me know if you're interested in going!
