Swim Destination - The plan

I have numerous open water swim destinations scheduled for 2010 including Austin, Boston, New York City, Pensacola and San Francisco. My intent is to review the swim, but mostly to review the trip and destination. I have completed more than 60 open water swims since 2004 including trips to Chicago, New York City and San Francisco. A primary restriction of my trips is to stay on budget, and on several occasions I have managed to attend multiple open water events in the same weekend. For example, I completed the 2009 Alcatraz Sharkfest on Saturday, and flew to Ketchikan, Alaska, to complete the 8-mile Pennock Island Challenge on Sunday. I have some opinions on open water swimming strategy. However, within the race and in training, I am a plodder… any appearance on a race podium will surprise me most. The intent of this blog is to review the swim and destination... training and strategy inquiries I'll leave mostly to the more experienced.
