I loved it. Great points here. I will try to swimming in the ocean in 2024. It is a challenge. I live in Vancouver, BC – Canada.
I have been doing long distance swimming (for me 2-4 miles) in Oyster Bay Harbor off of Long Island Sound for over 40 years. I start mid May and go through early October and swam about 175 miles this past year. I move indoors during the winter but am ALWAYS eagerly looking forward to a return to the open water! There is nothing better than a two hour swim without ever having to turn and lots of beautiful scenery to keep me entertained. I swam across Long Island Sound in 2001 but now that I am about to turn 70, I think I will stick to Harbor swimming!!!
I enjoy lap swimming but always wanted to do more open water swimming. I’m also in the New York area and would love more information regarding getting started.
