CGAUX Drysuit Exercise

0 Comments 14 January 2013

On Saturday, Jan.12, 2013 I participated in a Flotilla 17 (Coast Guard Auxillary) Drysuit exercise at Campbell Lake.  The temperature, for coastal Western Washington, was chilly:  25º F.  Water temperature, perhaps:  40º F.  My suit worked well, although the zipper needs some lube.  Wool gloves, when wet, are almost worthless.  I wish I had brought my neoprene scuba gloves.  The sun shined on us, geese flew overhead honking at us and a single-engine plane gave us a close inspection.  It was a good time.  Afterward, breakfast at the Bowling Alley in Anacortes was manditory.  The french toast was delicious!  BIG Fun and…..not your usual Saturday morning.
