Stayed about 20-30 yards from shore the whole time. Due east into sun, turn around, swim past start point by 200 meters, turn around and back to finish.

251 place over Big savage in 52:12.
No words to describe the course. Although, it did not come as close to breaking me as the practice ride in mid-August...it was damn, damn, damn hard.
I worked all the downhills. Also, after the first 40-45 miles, I felt awesome on the last few roads. Maxed out at 48.0 mph and on the descent past the river down into Westernport, maxed out at 42.2 mph.
Ate one Cliff bar after Westernport and 3.5 sleeves of Shot Blocks throughout the ride.
