Hi all -- I'm looking for a practice OWS in August. I'm training for the Nation's Triathlon, and am looking for a practice swim where I can use my wetsuit.
I've did Nation's last year, but my boyfriend is also training and this will be his first OWS.
Suggestions? Would the Luray swim on August 8 be our best bet?
Personally, I don't like Luray/Lake Arrowhead. For starters, it's not a lake, it's a glorified pond. As such it does not have any currents or chop. I suggest going to Sandy Point or someplace else where you can practice swimming in/against/across currents.
