The second round of tryouts went down last Saturday under ideal conditions.

The water temp has warmed up even more, just above 60F.  Skies were sunny and the air temp was somewhere in the upper 60’s, some residual south swell was on tap too with offshore winds.

While the tryout is more pass/fail than contest, there is definitely some friendly competition and motivation to place as high as possible, especially with the top 5 finishers getting hooked up by Bing’s Deli in Avon for some caloric replenishment.

It is important to remember that conditions are different for each tryout so there is no real way to judge who was fastest, Gilly or B Tighe.  The only way to really know is a one-on-one showdown…. who will be the winner?  Time will tell.

Thanks to everyone who came out and gave it their all and congrats to everyone who completed the 1.5 Mile Beach Run, 1.0 Mile Prone Paddle and .5 Mile Swim!
