Hi -- Not sure if this has been posted yet. But, rehab to racing is doing open water swim practices in a quarry in Haymarket. [I received my SCUBA certification there; it's deep water!]. Great riding nearby.
Rehab to Racing is offering open water swim sessions starting April 18th. The sessions are held at the Milbrook Quarry near Haymarket, VA. Sessions cost $25.
Swimming is from 2:30 to 4:30 PM on Sunday afternoons as posted.

Anyone been? I think I have to see this...
I've been - it's awesome!
Thanks for the post. I'm definately interested.
Does anyone know of any other open water swim practice going on in the near future?
I swam at the quarry last summer and, as a newbie, found the experience somewhat terrifying. The water was incredibly deep and dark, and the session was essentially unsupervised --I think there was one kayak out there. WaveOne Swimming is holding open water clinics and swims at Sandy Point starting in May, for the same price ($25). Check out the "open water swimming" page of www.waveoneswimming.com.
The Club is working with WaveOne to have a DC Tri only OWS. I will post details once we have them.
Thanks for the info. Will look out for more details
