Bridgett Hobart’s Nazareth College Finger Lakes Challenge is now 3 for 3 with a 15.5-mile swim in Canandaigua in 7 hours 38 minutes, a 19.8-mile swim in Keuka in 9 hours 7 minutes, and a 16-mile swim in Skaneateles in 7 hours 27 minutes.

All went great – felt great, strong, full of energy,” reported Hobart. “We managed to swim in at the tail end of a big storm.

And before the next one hit. We had all sorts of conditions, including a few hours of a headwind. But overall, we had a another fabulous weekend and my crew rocked it again. I’ve been blessed with a great crew on each swim, which is really making this fun and logistics easier on me
.

Cayuga is my biggie challenge as it will be my longest continuous swim with the estimate 20-22 hours for 37.9 miles. I plan to start between 6-8 pm on August 8th on Cayuga Lake. My preference is to swim north to south so I end in Ithaca, but I’ll finalize my direction as wind becomes more known for the day.”
