A windy start to the season

The first Saturday of the season was a cold and windy morning, but that didn’t stop the keen swimmers. While some people were there because of their love of swimming, everybody else must have turned up to get a head start on their point scores. The air temperature was 18 degrees, while the wind chill factor made it felt like 13°C (at least while you were dry). The wind was blowing at 14 knots from the SE and the Bilgola rockpool provided no shelter. The “warm” water (20°C) was a good way to get out of the wind. The events swam today were the 100m choice, freestyle, and 2×50 relay. The canteen had some lovely baked muffins and tarts.
