Advanced Swim. Still pretty cold, nearly dark. Lighted float required. Thermal everything recommended.
My perpetual target pace is about 1:10/100yds, though I'm usually a bit lazier.
The bleachers are useless due to Aquatic Park construction (railroad tracks removal and a complete repave of the pathway), so we'll meet by the public showers right by the Dolphin Club (the eastern corner of Aquatic Park - the first thing on the right if you're walking west from Jefferson St/Fisherman's Wharf area.)
If these graphs are more than an hour old, click one of them, come back here, and then press refresh. Buoy measurements seems to be finicky the last few days.

When the moon is closer to the Earth and is full, or new, it has its biggest impact on the ocean. Studies suggest that the risk of pet emergencies is 23% greater in cats and 28% greater in dogs on days near the full moon. Legend has it that the full moon makes a mermaid "moon struck"; meaning she loses her memory and may forget to put her tail away...its a thing.
