Effective Monday, August 30 – Open Water Swim at Williams Wharf will be held on Mondays and Thursdays only.
Also changing is the swim start & end time – still 90 minutes each on those two evenings, just a shift to earlier (starting to get dark earlier). Open Water Swim at Williams Wharf will now be available starting at 5:00pm and will end at 6:30pm – again only on Mondays & Thursdays.
PS – as a reminder, swimming at Williams Wharf other than through this program is prohibited.
Why the change? I looked at attendance rates and those two days were the most popular. There were a few days when our swim attendant, Tiffany, had no one in the water. She & I agreed that consolidating the availability was the right move for the final month of the swim season: that’s right, September is the final month we have planned for 2021 Open Water Swim sessions. The summer just FLEW BY, right?
As a favor to Tiffany, please text her on Monday or Thursday midday if you are planning to swim that evening. If she receives no texts, she doesn’t need to make the trip to the wharf – it isn’t a big drive – she lives fairly close – but a nice gesture for sure. Open Water Swimmers: please check your emails for her cell number – and don’t forget to let her know if/when you plan to come.
Of course, reach out to me with any concerns about the change or to share feedback. We appreciate your participation in the outdoor fitness programs during this, our first year offering them. Thank you, Christine
