01/03/06 CCB Masters New Year Stroke-Count Set & Cord Work

I do a lot of tethered swimming, but have not had my Masters do any of it because of lack of equipment. I now have one long-belt tether and two short tethers, so I tried to devise this practice so that everyone would get at least 2 chances to try to tethers. They found the tether swimming challenging but revealing of certain stroke flaws. Have to do more of this. Those using the long tether used 1 pull buoy. Those using the short tether used 2 pull buoys.
