Hey swimmers,

Has anyone done the St. Croix 5 mile swim in october? We have a group thinking about going. Any personal feedback would be great.

Thanks,

While, Iím not from the Central LMSC, Iíll chime in anyway.

I went a couple of years ago, and it was great, marvelous, terrific! Randy Nutt always puts on a world class event and the hospitality of the folks at The Buccaneer and on the island makes it a truly memorable experience.

Watching the fish during the race in the crystal clear waters can be a but distracting, every now and then Iíd breath every 8 Ė 10 strokes, just so I could keep watching the fish swimming along. This is not recommended for a fast swim, but how many times do us lake swimmers get a chance to do real clear water ocean swimming?

I would highly recommend this event and suggest you enter early before it fills up. I rate this as one of my top 10 open water venues in North America.
