Swam first OW: Masters 5K OW event at Mira Mar Lake, FL on April 29. Time - 1hr 18min; First place in Masters Mens 55-59, and Third place Masters Mens overall (because many OW swimmers were at USMS Nationals that weekend)
Women started five minutes later and (only) three went past me, the first one... Brooke Bennett, just flew by. At the bottom part of the dog leg course there was a surprising amount of wave and wind activity for what had appeared to be a calm lake at the start. I enjoyed the challenge. My finish was not the Bill Rose finish I hoped to do, but I was able to stagger up on to the beach having made my best effort.
