Poseidon Swim Challenge!

It's been a busy week at the Canal. Today it was the Poseidon Swim Challenge. It's a 2k open water race. There is also an 800 meter race for kids 13 and under. Usually swimming is not allowed in the Canal, so this was fun to see!

I took these shots at the beginning of the race, which starts in "waves" according to the swimmers' swim cap colors. The swimmers who report a faster estimated time finish are in the 1st start wave, followed by the slower swimmers. The water temperature was reported as 80 degrees. Everyone had a great time, including the fans who followed the swimmers along the canal.
