Spring is just around the corner, and that means people are starting to think about open water swimming again! The Mar-Apr issue of SWIMMER Magazine is the annual issue devoted to the discipline of OW swimming, and contains a number of highlights, including an “Ask the Coach” article with POWM head coach Jay Peluso, and a review of sleeveless wetsuits (see below for a video review that was posted on the USMS YouTube channel).
If you haven’t received your paper copy of SWIMMER, you don’t need to wait: you can read the latest issue online as long as you have set up a USMS Discussion Forum account and you are logged in. If you don’t have an account, you can find out how to create one here.
There are already a number of OW events on our upcoming events calendar; just type “OW” (without the quotes) in the search box to filter the table for those events. More events will be added or updated in the upcoming weeks.
