Does anyone know of an open water group or a good place to swim in the Baltimore area? I am going to be there later this month and would like to get in some cooler water training.

    Hey Bart,

    Do you know where you are staying yet? We go out at the Hammerman Area of Gunpowder State Park. It is about 10 miles NE of downtown. I'll be happy to join you if you are looking for some company. My office is near the airport and I may be able to find something else if you are going to be closer to that area.

    Can we be clear? I'm guessing you don't mean the original Baltimore, in Ireland? Stephen Redmond (Ocean's Seven leader) trains in Lough Hyne near there with a couple of other Channel swimmers, temps currently about 10c, (50f).
