And They're Off!

Quite a bit of activity last night here at the Maho Pavilion as registration for the Beach to Beach Swim began, followed by a race overview and dinner. Those that planned ahead and reserved a tent here at Maho had an easy "commute" down the goat trail to Big Maho this morning for the start of the race at 8am.

Our A-Section tents provided the best views this morning for the start of the race. Our best estimates would be somewhere between 125-150 people? (edit: apparently 203 signed up the night before). Swimmers couldn't have asked for a better day in terms of weather; the water was perfectly calm and looked like it would stay that way for the rest of the day. Of course that doesn't include all the volunteers out on kayaks, surf boards (paddle boarding) and boats.

Kayakers, boaters and paddleboarders await the start (above)

The first swimmers in the water (below) just have 3 1/2 miles to go!
