Pennock Island Challenge - 8.2 miles

Swimming one of the legs around Pennock Island naked!
Tina was one of our kayakers keeping us on the straight and narrow.
The "Ladies Team" at the finish buoy: Me, Nell, Francis, and Penny

Last weekend I swam around Pennock Island (an island across from Ketchikan) with three other awesome ladies. It was my first open water racing experience and I loved it. We all took turns swimming around the island. We swam in 1/2 hour increments. The swim is a sanctioned Master's Swimming event. The swim is used to raise money for the American Diabetes Association. I am hoping to swim again next year with one other teammate.
