The Fat Salmon Open-water Swim – July 14
The 2018 Fat Salmon Swim will take place on the morning of Saturday, July 14th. Fat Salmon is a 3.2 mile open water swim on Lake Washington between the I-90 and SR-520 bridges. This event is expected to be completed by the time the PSRG event on that date begins, so there shouldn’t be a conflict if you want to participate in both. Posts are available on boats, on shore and if you are qualified in a kayak we can use you there.
To sign up for these events contact Franz Niedermeyer at his email: N3HFS at ARRL.net
