Practicing Open Water Swimming in the Pool!

Did their very novel idea work? You bet it did! Just take a look at the You Tube footage below, (there are two films available), -- it was almost like swimming in Huntington Bay or Cold Spring Harbor -- just 30 plus degrees warmer! And, oh yes, there were lane lines!
