I am going to do another open-water swim race in September - the Governors Island swim. This is because I realize that for the Little Red Lighthouse swim later that month I will need a qualifying event - I really do not want to have to do a certified pool swim of 3 miles (4950 yards), in fact I think it would be logistically challenging even to arrange for it to be administered!

[ED. Ugh, I will need to do a pool certification for THIS one, too! Swim escalation!]

But can you do it next year after the Pirates Week 5K in November?

Hi Jenny,
The Lighthouse Swim is pretty late in the open water season. You may still be able to qualify. I would encourage you to talk with Coach Conrad about this.

Thanks, Miriam! I have been poking around on the website, and I now think that as long as I do the Park to Park swim and the distance is not reduced, that will probably cover me - it is complex!

Good luck with the pool certification. Maybe there are others also doing the event too so there might be an actual pool qualifier event held?

Interesting, I didn't realize one had to qualify for these types of events. Good luck in getting qualified!
