Six Days to Nine Miles

posted July 29, 2007 @ 9:19 PM  |  Meets, Open Water, and Other Events category


Our last weekend of open-water training before Minnesota and the nine mile swim to benefit a young man with Cerebral Palsy. This weekend we were training in Stony Brook Harbor in St. James, New York. Most of our swimming was at a very relaxed pace, long, strong, and focused. The venue was nearly ideal - an inlet of the Long Island Sound - although rocky onshore with quite a few sand bars in the middle of the bay.

We did have a few problems running into large schools of fish but the biggest source of concern was one neither of us had ever seen before. In fact, had I not been in Long Island, I would have bet it was a sea turtle, especially after it rolled on its back and moved it's fins. The only suspect we could identify was the Wolffish. I must say, I was really taken by surprise and I've never seen anything quite like it. Very unsettling, although I'm guessing its harmless.

Review our route:

Are you sure it wasn't a Sea Robin?

Hmm could be, but isn't the same color. Still could be though. It seemed to be quite large.
