Sunday Ocean Swims Start June 1
IT'S OCEAN SWIM TIME!
We gear up at the picnic bench behind the Ash Avenue lifeguard tower, and officially start each swim off the SB county side of the beach. To get there, take Linden Avenue and head towards the ocean. The last street before entering the Linden beach parking lot is Sandyland, turn right and then go to the end of that street (about 3 blocks). The last street is Ash Avenue, park anywhere along the street (free parking).
Sunday ocean swims are a weekly activity, so if you can't make it to one, another one will be right around the corner! We typically continue up until the weekend before the Carpinteria Triathlon (though sometimes swim longer weather permitting). Wetsuits for the swims are recommended, but not at all required. We are also looking for a few to join us out on the water on kayaks, so if you're interested in doing the course from a little different perspective, please let me know as soon as you get to the beach. We have access to a limited amount of kayaks, and kayaking spots fill up fast.
No RSVP is necessary, and feel free to bring family and friends. All we ask is for all participants to sign a liability waiver, and to swim responsibly. Remember also to bring a little something to eat for the potluck brunch after the swim. There is no charge for the swim, but we do welcome donations for food.
Also note that although we will not be doing a Summerland to Carpinteria swim this year, we do have a couple of new surprises in store that will be announced at our first couple swims. This will be our 16th year of our Sunday ocean swims here in Carpinteria!
See you in the water =)
