Title: Thursday Beginners' Open Water Swim - Meet at Torrey Pines Aquathalon
Date: Aug 14 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
Location: Torrey Pines North Beach
Description: We're taking the Beginners Open Water Swim on the road this week, joining up with the Aquathalon to get some experience with surf entries/exits!

The next Beginners' Open Water Swim will be held Thursday, 14 August, at Torrey Pines North Beach. We'll meet by the TCSD tents at 5:45 (we *strongly* suggest you arrive early...this is new for us all, and it may take a bit to get parked and find each other), watch the race get underway at 6pm, and then hit the water ourselves to practice surf entries/exits.

Location: Torrey Pines North Beach. Transition will be set up next to the Lifeguard tower North of the inlet. Or for those who like to use addresses: Torrey Pines State Reserve, McGonigle Rd, Del Mar 92014.Where do I park? Free spots: On Carmel Valley Rd. south of McGonigle Rd. OR on Torrey Pines Road south of the Inlet OR anywhere additional that you can find. There is also a car pool lot at Carmel Valley just West of I-5. Pay spots: State beach parking lots ($15/day or free if you have a state parking pass (SURF EXPLORER VEHICLE DAY USE ANNUAL PASS)

This swim is intended for those who are making the transition from the pool to the open water. Participants should be able to swim at least 100m without stopping. All you need is a brightly colored swim cap (don't let that stop you...we have extras) and the desire to see just how wonderful swimming can be. The water temp has been great for the last week or so, but wet suits are recommended. If you don't have one, please check with the Club's wet suit rental program (http://triclubsandiego.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=category&layout=blog&id=65&Itemid=274)

See you there!
