Washington’s Crossing, 2022

Had my first race this weekend, WaveOne’s Washington’s Crossing. National Harbor over to Jones Point and back, 4.2km or so. Did this one back in 2020, and also didn’t swim straight back then.

That straight line from 0 to 2km was because I was following buoys. Yellow out, orange back. But for the life of me, I couldn’t find any of those orange buoys. Thus, my apparent attempt to cross under the Wilson Bridge on the way back.

Right in the middle of the safety brief, Denis got a call from, I suppose, the Coast Guard. All set up!

My final goal. Took longer than I thought. No idea on my official time, but my app said in the low 1:50s. Will update this once I know for sure.

When I swam back in they were pretty much closing up. I think there were maybe 3 or 4 swimmers after me. The pier was pretty empty, too.
