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.”
