The Beaches Are Closed To Swimming
The Rehoboth beach patrol has been drilling this morning, tuning their skills in the rough seas. People were encouraged to enter the ocean near lifeguards all week and a few days the beaches were shut down to swimming due to heavy waves and rip currents. Today was no exception the waves are just too dangerous for people to swim. With the heavy winds you can cool off enough just standing on the beach. I saw a video yesterday of a guy that went swimming off a beach and wound up a block and a half from where he entered in no time. Please stay near lifeguard stands when visiting the beaches to swim. The swim at your own risk beaches are not the place you want to try and get some wave time, there is no one to help you if you get jammed up. I would imagine the beaches will be closed most of the week to swimming.
