Whiskeytown Lake Open Water Swim - PacMasters Open Water Championships 12 September 2010
This year, the two mile swim has been designated the Pacific Masters Swimming Open Water Championship. Whiskeytown Lake is just outside Redding so plan to drive up the day before. This is a beautiful lake. There’s a nice shady picnic area and beach so bring the family. This event is in the early fall and the weather can be either chilly or hot. The lake is a bit cooler than Berryessa (think mid to high 60’s). If you plan to do both the 1- and 2-mile events, be prepared to feel a little cold at the start of the 2-mile. Post event snacks.
