Women Swimmin' 2013

Aurora and I went down to the Ithaca Yacht Club on Cayuga Lake this morning just after the crack of dawn to photograph the start of the 10th Annual Women Swimmin' event. Here are just a few of the images from today. More images are on Facebook.

Women Swimmin' is a 1.2 mile community swim (not a race!) across Cayuga Lake for women ages 18 and over. Together we raise funds which will go directly to support patient and family services here in Tompkins County.

This is the Haendel, the same boat that Aurora works on as part of the Floating Classroom. She made a comment this morning that she had never seen the Haendel make such good speed moving across the water as she did this morning.


  1. awesome efforts from them all, and BAGPIPES!

  2. Gary, so true! It was an amazing effort. Seeing all the women come together for this was overwhelming. So much emotion and compassion.Great support all 'round.
    The bagpipes were a really nice touch. Made Aurora and I smile!
