Anyone know where I can go and swim in open water? Any training or dc tri club events coming up in open water?
Sandy Point in Md and Lake Anna in Va seem to be the two most popular places semi-locally where folks go to get in their open water fixes. Those are your most feasible options unless you want to drive further out. Outside of those two venues, there aren't any other open water places locally that are opened to the general public (again, unless you want to drive futher out).
Club open water clinics or general get together are either posted on the calendar when one is planned or somewhere in the forum.
