High Society In Lake Tahoe

High Society In Lake Tahoe

Jamie Patrick of the Lake Tahoe Swimming Society certified three successful crossings of Lake Tahoe last weekend:

On July 27th, North Channel conqueror Craig Lenning of Denver, Colorado swam in the north to south direction in 11 hours 0 minutes 26 seconds.

The following day, Morgan Christian of San Diego, California swam in the south to north direction in the wetsuit assisted category (wetsuit) in 14 hours 42 minutes.

The next day, Rob Laurie of Incline Village, Nevada repeated Christian’s swim (south to north in a wetsuit) in 10 hours 42 minutes.

Today at 10 am, Joe Locke is attempting a double-crossing of Lake Tahoe.

This coming week, Kim Chambers, Cliff Crozier and the Mighty Mermaids (relay) will be tackling this marathon course up at 6,225 feet (1,897m) altitude between California and Nevada.

Those who swim under the auspices of the Lake Tahoe Swimming Society receive a beautifully designed belt buckle.
