Once upon a time, Sam's Arkansas men's relay set a new world record in a short-course meters event and our squad was in the next lane getting dusted like there was no tomorrow. And our guys were so jazzed just to be in there next to their show of greatness. I know it was a Southwest Conference relay meet and it might have been seeded alphabetically, because A for Arkansas is close to B for Baylor. (Quote from Coach Mark Rauterkus)

Open Water Swimming clinics have been hosted as an activity for members of the Pittsburgh Triathlon Club as part of the Saturday Swim School. One was hosted on April 28, 2018. More are expected in the future. If interested, join our low-volume mailing list or leave a message on this page.
You asked for three things: Body position, body position, body position.
Well, to be sure, breathing is sorta nice too, but that comes from good body position. And, being relaxed in the water as well, but guess how that happens? Yep. good body position.
Be quick to add fins. Be quick to mix it up with a pulling float, often, PB in swim workout lingo.
