A small group of brave souls are plugging along in today’s Gertrude Ederle swim, from the Battery in NYC to Sandy Hook state park in NJ, via New York Harbor. The swim had to be postponed from Saturday until today due to weather conditions, but it’s still no day at the pool out there. Here’s what the swimmers are enjoying:
Weather conditions – sunny, winds 10-15 knots, gusting to 20, with 2-3 foot seas.
The swim is in honor of Gertrude Ederle, first woman to swim the English Channel, who made this swim herself before conquering the Channel.
