We did our first open water swim this past saturday at Luckys. We had 10 participants there and everyone did 1 crossing at got to sign the wall. Clint had a wind surfer board and followed 2-3 of the weaker swimmers. I swam with a couple people to make sure they were okay. I think I was more nervous for everyone else, than I have ever been for my self. Just checked Luckys website. There was 130 swimmers this past weekend. It was crowded. We waited till everyone was in the water than our group went.
Water temp was 84. It was great. Very calm. We plan on doing several more open water swims before the Nations Triathlon. But, a good start.
