This is an open water swim in San Diego, CA. I am going to do the 1-miler and seriously contemplating doing the 3-miler. No wetsuits are allowed in the race. Water temperature hovers in the high 60s and is super buoyant due to the salt. No floaties allowed of any kind. There is something to be said sitting on the edge of the ocean, looking at the buoy 1.5 miles away, knowing that you have to swim there in back with just some speedos and goggles.
