Do we have any swimmers from the great North of Alaska planning on swimming around Pennock Island this year?

Just moved up here to Juneau and will start swimming with the Juneau Masters swim club soon. I didn't know people could do 8 miles without a swimsuit up here! (per the pics on the site you gave) I'm impressed!

I'd like to say I'd do the swim, but I'm not sure I could do the cold water, or even the 8 miles! Tough swim!

But.. could you tell me if wetsuits are allowed? or would I be the wimp of the crowd if I did that? lol...

Great to be up here though, this state is Fantastic!!!!!!!

Wet suites are welcome, but not really needed. If you are curious we only had two of the 24 swimmers from last year go without wetsuits.

ahhh thanks, that makes me feel much better!

I may need to train longer distances this summer to make it, but now that I know it's there, I may give it a shot, thanks for sharing!
