The 2018 Change Your Latitude week is here! We are very excited to welcome all of our out of town participants to this years event and are very excited to have all of our local swimmers welcome you too! This year we have 58 swimmers jumping in, with a few more 1k day of registrations expected too we hope to top 60 swimmers! I know that this paragraph is filled with exclamation marks but we just can’t believe how excited we are and how much our event has grown the past several years.
I am attaching the schedule for the Saturday and Sunday events. Everyone should have also received the attached flyer for the excursion swims (and other info) in a separate email.
