Croatian open water
Initially, I thought I'd just write @Niek and ask him. But then I thought there is most probably someone in the MSF who has personal experience. So after a quick search to make sure this thread/question is not already on here, I submit to you the following:
Anyone know which of the many open water swims in Croatia are for slow people? I ask, because a) I cannot tell from their website and b) I've gone down this route before in Cyprus.
On the Croatian Union of Long-distance Swimmers (Hrvatski Savez Daljinskog Plivanja) website there is a very handy calendar (albeit, for 2014). Many swims are listed there, but I cannot tell if these swims will be filled with a bunch of young, fast swimmers or if they'll be filled with those of us wanting a nice few hours on the water competing against ourselves?
The fam and I are looking at traveling to Croatia for 2-3 weeks sometime in July to the beginning of August. If anyone has any personal experience with swimming these events, please let me know! And I thank you in advance.
We're all just carbon, water, starlight, oxygen and dreams
