I wanted to organize an open water swim in Milford.  I was thinking about starting at Silver Sands Park, swimming parallel to the sand bar towards Charles island, circumnavigate the island and swim back to the beach (again parallel to the sand bar).  Seems to be a safe swim since boats stay away from the sand bar.  Anyone interested, please contact me, we can set a date and hopefully get a good group to do it together

i'd be interested in an open water swim in the area. I'm not sure how safe that route is. It depends on the tide. I think there is a pretty strong current in that area when the tide is changing.

Yes, we need to time it right so that we start at high tide, then we will have plenty of time to do the route before low tide which can be the dangerous part, especiallyclose to the bar

i'd be interested - we often swim at west haven beach right at Jimmys, they have a buoy line and the beach is clean, plus you can grab a lobster roll and a beer after.

I'm still on for the Charles Island Circumnavigation, but changing the date and time to August 14 at 11:00am.  High tide is at noon so should be perfect timing.

Hope to see you there.

Hi everyone,

As you know on the 14th/15th we had the big rain storm so clearly the swim did not happen.  I ended up doing it on the 18th.  It was a great swim, according to the Garmin watch it was 2.2 miles.  Swam it on 1:07.  I am defenitely doing it again before the summer is over.

Let me know who's interested and when.
