It’s been a long, cool, and mostly wet spring. We were worried for a moment that this would put a damper on one of the newer swims to The SWOOWS, the Wildwood Spring Splash, held at Wildwood Conservation area in St. Marys. We are happy to report that it was an incredible success!

We wanted decent conditions and got water that was 20 degrees C and air that was ~ 24 degrees to go with it.

We had 2 options for adults, the 4 km and 1 km….

On top of that we had our Mighty Minnow who did a fantastic job!

Why do I keep emphasizing the Mighty Minnows? Well… last year these two were Mighty Minnows. This year they both did their 1st 1 km Open Water Swim.

Everything ran smoothly and we couldn’t have asked for a better 1st swim at Wildwood.
