I really hope the lakes warm up fast - with the Rev3 only 33 days and 21 hours away, I'm pretty sure I'll only see 3 or 4 OWS before then; by the time the waters get warm enough to get a quality swim in.  I'm tired of doing laps.  Anyone have a heated lake they are using?

This is my 3rd year doing REV3 and it's always my first OWS of the season.  Good thing I'm comfortable in open water.

Its been a cool spring, thats for sure. I might venture into Lake T in Mid May.  If anyone would like to join me that would be great.

I'm new. I did Lake T a few years back. Is that lake available to anyone for a after hours swim? Is there another lake you all use? My first wetsuit is on it's way!

Lake T is open to residents of the town. Starting last year they made parking passes available for the triathlon season (as long as the Lake T series is in effect) available for $25. You can buy them at Newington Bike or you can get them at any Lake T event. I bought one last year, and just picked one up this year. It's money well spent to train a few minutes from home where people are used to seeing swimmers out in the middle of the lake.

Does anyone know of swimmable lakes further south? I'm going to be waiting a long time for the sound to heat up. I'm thinking the Hamden, Cheshire, Wallingford, North Haven area. I don't mind driving up to lake T but would prefer something a bit more local.
