The Interminable Wait

It's the direction of the wind that is a major factor in the final decision. If it's a headwind, the swim is cancelled . Reg said for every stroke forward the head wind would push a swimmer back--- making it a very difficult swim. I will update in three hours.

I just got off the phone with Reg.----- the winds have decreased but not enough. He will wait three hours before he makes his final decision if the swim will take place at 1 am.
