1. Crowded LanesSome of the lanes are getting too crowded for some swims. If you arrive and there are are already 2 or more swimmers in your usual lane than in adjacent lanes, then please swim in an adjacent lane. We have asked Pal to help with this. If he asks you to move to another lane then please give it a try. You’ll get faster if you challenge yourself a little.
