The swim this morning came off without any major issues, which I was happy about. Teaming up with FS Series was the best thing we could have done, as they have got the system down pat. So thanks to:
New York Bagels and Deli - Cary
Volunteers and racers from the TAC-OSB Masters Swimming group
Everyone who showed up to swim!
All in all we had 125 registered athletes. Patrick Woodruff, former UNC swimmer and a TAC-OSB masters swimmer, was the overall winner in just under 21 minutes. Kim Rice, training for an English Channel crossing in 2010, was the female winner in 23 minutes.
Our only problem was one woman who was a first-timer, who showed up late (after the start), and then sidestroked or backstroked the entire course. We kept a kayak or surfboard with her to ensure she made it.
You can find the results here.
