One of my friends on Twitter turned me onto the Chesapeake Bay Swim recently. It’s a 4.4 mile swim across the Chesapeake Bay (go figure). Turns out it’s pretty popular and they have to hold a lottery for swim slots. The lottery opened up today and I got myself entered… if you have an urge to do some east coast swimming in June check out the Chesapeake Bay Swim’s web site. The actual site to sign up for the lottery is here. This one isn’t a masters sanctioned event by the way.
If I get into this one I’m going to have to try and arrange an open water world tour of America :) There are a lot of USMS Open Water National Championship events I want to go to this summer! Anybody want to sponsor a bald blogging open water enthusiast to fly all over the country and swim all the cool open water swims? Eh? Not everybody all at once now!
**UPDATE 11JAN10: I’m in! I won a spot and paid my entry fee today!
