A friend and I want to go for a 2-3 hour open water swim in Jacksonville FL. Which beach can we use for this trainning swim?

I would recommend Fernandina Beach which is about 20 miles north of Jacksonville on Amelia Island. This was the site of last year's USMS 5K Open Water National Championships. It was a great location. You can swim right against the shore for a long, long way! I'm sure there are also places closer to Jacksonville but I have never swum there? Be sure to check out the town as there are tons of nice shops and restaurants.
