Open Water Swimming Opportunities - Saturday, May 5, 2012
POSTED: 4/29/12 7:51 PM

PeasantMan and WaveOne have teamed up once again to provide everyone with an open water swimming experience. Whether you are training for your first triathlon or your 5th Ironman, we will be setting up a swim course complete with buoys and kayak support to provide you with an awesome OWS experience. You can swim 10 meters or 10,000 meters around the course that we will lay out.

For the newbies, WaveOne will put on a clinic before the swim to help you with your OWS endeavors. For the veteran triathletes, you can use the established swim course to practice your OWS or lodge in massive amount of yardage for your training.

The cost for OWS clinic is $16. This includes access to the swim course for those who are just interested in the swim portion. However, if you want more individualized coaching, there is an option on WaveOne's web site that you can sign up for to take advantage of this. The cost is $35.

The event will be at Lake Anna on Saturday May 5, 2012. Go to the below URL to register and get more details. WaveOne will also pick a name out of a hat before the swim begins. If your name is picked, you go home with a brand new wetsuit ... pretty sweet I would say :)

WaveOne is the premier open water swim clinic and open water swim race organizers in the area. They are the ones that run the master swim program for DCTri at Wilson. They are also the ones that hold the summer OWS program out of the National Harbor. They also hold clinics for the DCTri Ironman training program, half Ironman training programs, and a few others. You are getting a top experience for a very low price.

This is open to everyone, not just the participants of PeasantMan. I hope you all take advantage of this rare opportunity at a discounted price.

Denis from WaveOne will be at the happy hour this Thursday at McFadden's, if anyone wants to ask him questions about this event or his series at the National Harbor this summer.

There will be a BBQ after the swim, but BBQs don't grow on trees in America. A donation for the food will be insisted if you want to dine with Royalty.

Any idea what the water temps are supposed to be this weekend?

I was wondering that too. The Power plant webpage says the intake water is currently 63 degrees.

If I had to guess, it would be in the upper 60's. That lake is shallow enough that a heat wave like they are predicting starting today until Sunday that it will move it up a few degrees.

It was kind of the same last year. The water temp the week before was kind of cold, but came race weekend it was perfect.
