Maybe you’re new to CIBBOWS and want to swim in a group instead of on your own, or you are an established member who just wants company. This group swim is a great way to meet up with others and perhaps find other people your speed to plan future swims with. You will head out with 2 experienced leaders and swim in a pack, pausing at each jetty to allow slower swimmers to catch up.  Group swims are adjusted to the particular needs and experience of each group; but expect to swim at least a mile parallel to shore, past the jetties. You can turn around and leave the group as long as you let a leader know. Slower swimmers may bring fins. Please be sure to hydrate beforehand, bring extra water, and plenty of sunscreen. Note: This swim will be in deeper water. If you’re a beginner or prone to panic attacks, this swim is not for you.
