Commanding Ocer: Capt. Jerey Kim Chief Sta Ocer: Cmdr. Terry McNamara Command Master Chief: CMDCM (SW/AW) Warren Britten Public Aairs Ocer: Mr. James ODonnell Editor: Kristina Doss Layout: Kristina Doss NEWS AND NOTICES Comment: Sometimes it rains during children's swim lessons, which are held at the Green Beach pool, and it can be too crowded for lap swimming. It also feels too cold in the pool. If the Main Base has two pools, Purdy and Green Beach, why can't the Purdy pool be open for swim lessons, and recreational and lap swimming when the Green Beach pool is open? Commander Fleet Activities Yokosuka @cfay_pao @CFAY_Japan yokosukareport@ Response: Thank you for your comment. For 2018, under Navy-wide MWR guidance, CFAY is only approved to keep one pool on Main Base and one pool in Ikego open at any given time. For summer we do open the Purdy pool for physical training from 5:30 to 7:30 a.m. on weekdays. Green Beach pool is open 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. every day.

It is possible to vote when you are stationed overseas. For more information and assistance, please visit: https://www. o r contact the Voting Assistance Ocer: 2439626 while we cannot overlap Main Base pool opening times, we will explore changes in the transition time from Purdy to Green Beach to see if a better balance can be struck to suit our community needs. As for the Green Beach pool temperature, the current water temperature is 79 degrees. Though this is ideal for lap swimming, it is not for recreational swimming, which should be around 83 degrees. As the summer continues to heat up, the Green Beach pool temperature will rise. Thank you for your comment and enjoy the rest of the summer at one of our pools.
