Swim parallel to beach about a half mile towards second buoy. Turn right ninety degrees and swim perpendicular to shoreline for about 25 yards to third buoy. Turn right around buoy and swim back to first buoy. The beacon can be helpful for sighting on this return leg. Turn left around buoy and head into shore.
