Winter / Early Spring swim events in US
Hey guys - I've combed through the various event calendars and some older threads on the site and it struck me as there are hardly any events listed for Feb-April. Looking for an upcoming 10-12 miler in warmer (70ish degree) waters (maybe near Florida or Midwest would be warm that time of the year)? Or is this wishful thinking? Trying to use this as a qualifying swim (requirement is 6 hours or 10 mile minimum) . Too cold by me in New York that time of year so figured if I am going far from home then an organized event is easiest (just show up, little planning, etc compared to planning my own swim).
Wishful thinking or does anyone know of an event that fits the bill somewhere in the US?
