The pod includes swimmers of various levels of speed and experience and a number of enthusiastic, passionate, knowledgeable ocean swimmers.

Members often participate in and report on open water swimming competitions, events and happenings around the world. They welcome other friends and open water swimmers to their training sessions where swimmers can swim traditionally (i.e., no wetsuits) or with wetsuits if the water is deemed too cold.


Members include Patsee Ober, Lynn Kubasek, Howard Burns, Bryan Buck, Scott Zornig, Roni Hibben, and many others including Wilson.
