Ребята,

I haven't gone to one yet but I'm considering 2015 for no other reason than that I speak Russian but have never been there. If I do go, I like the idea of being with an organized group since I am not an experienced overseas traveler.

There's no way I meet any of the qualifying times so the slim hope is that few enough USA swimmers are entered that some spots open by default, right?

с уваженеим,

Check the qualifying times when they become available. As an indication, check the Montreal Worlds ones now. I'm 40-44 with a physical disability. I can't come anywhere near USMS Nationals qualifying times, but can qualify for Masters Worlds in several events. The Worlds qualifying times are slower - counterintuitive but true.

I was confusing world championships times (sub-4:00 400m FR for example) with world MASTERS championships. I looked at the montreal times as you suggested and I indeed may have a shot.
