Subject: Open water style pool swim?
A local race has switched this year from traditional pool swim to an open water style pool swim, with athletes going off in waves of 10 athletes. Does anybody have experience with this style and have some insights on what to expect? I'm hesitant because I'm sure if this will cause more contact/jockeying. Thanks for any info/experiences.

Done it in both a 10 lane 50m pool and an 8 lane 25m pool.... sucks in a short course pool, faster swimmers are lapping slower swimmers constantly.
