Harmon’s 44-mile Lake Tahoe swimming challenge delayed

High winds delayed Ken Harmon’s bid to swim the two lengths of Lake Tahoe on Saturday.

Harmon postponed his 44.2-mile Ultimate Tahoe Challenge until Sunday evening at the earliest because of small craft warnings by the U.S Coast Guard.

Harmon, a 50-year-old distance swimmer from Danville, Calif., was planning to swim from Hyatt Beach in Incline Village to Camp Richardson near South Lake Tahoe and back.

Harmon was projecting to finish as early as 5 p.m. on Monday at Hyatt Beach.

The long-distance swim is benefittng Best Buddies International at http://www.bestbuddies.org/tahoechallenge, the Karen Gaffney Foundation at http://www.karengaffneyfoundation.com at the Down Syndrome Network of Northern Nevada at http://www.dsnnn.org.
