Past Meetup

Sunday 11:00am ~ Lake Natoma - Nimbus Flats OWS


Swim at Nimbus or Cold Water Acclimation

Meet at: 11:00am at the large viewing platform *see photo and map below

Distance: Swim as short or long as you like

Water temp will likely be around 50 / 55 degrees F

Wetsuits are recommended for those who have not been swimming in the open water this Winter. Since the water is still cold it's recommended you are an experienced swimmer or have done some open water swimming.

If you are acclimating to cold water here are a few tips:

Bring something hot to drink right before and right after

Bring warm dry clothing you can change into right after your swim.

Don't stay in too long if you are really cold :-)

Some athletes like to wear neoprene caps when getting used to cold water.

*note if there are no rsvps by day before I will likely take it off the system so pls rsvp if you plan on attending :-)
