I had a bit of trouble at first sticking my face in the cold water, and swam head-up for a few yards before I could do it, but I got over that soon enough and settled into a good pace. It is a point to point swim that follows the channel in the sound on the west side of the island, then takes a left turn into the yacht club. The current was pretty strong, and I got to the turn (marked by a giant orange wiggly man) much faster than I ever thought possible. My last Half-Iron swim was about 40 minutes, and this was way, way faster than that. It was an awesome swim.
