Pre-race routine:

Early wake up - cereal and PBNJ, coffe and soda
Event warmup:

Arrived about an hr prior. Check-in , Potty break, warmed up by swimming about 200yds, weather was absolutely perfect.
  • 36m 53s
  • 2112 yards
  • 01m 45s / 100 yards

Was in first wave, even so there was a lot of contact till turn around. Wetsuits were allowed, after about 10minutes, there was less contact, and the course buoys were easy to spot, the weather and water were perfect. At the turn around there was some sun glare, and the course weaved a bit on the return leg, next to some piers, a few swimmers ran right into the wooden posts,there was some confusion with buoys at end (because some were for 2.4 mi), swim ended on the shallow beach up two steps and through the timing mat..
Post race
Warm down:

Exited the water, drank some water, then got my camera and took pictures and video of other finishers.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

A bit too much contact to the first turn around, sighting was pretty good, by GPS track info shows it could be better,

Event comments:

Nice refreshments after race, was able to watch 2.4mile swimmers finish up.
