The event started in the early evening to rain. Not that we noticed in the water. I ran into my friend LB shortly before jumping off the boat Respect. The pack was very congested, and it never really cleared up. For some reason the water seemed cloudier than the East River was last year, perhaps because of all the rain we've been having lately. It was overcastand very choppy - fun, but challenging. Pretty neat event, and it was a real treat to swim at the feet of Lady Liberty.
