Open Water Swim in the Hamptons 5 Years, 5 Months ago  
Im going out to the Hamptons (not sure exactly where), later next week and I was just wondering if anyone could recommend a place to do a little open water swimming. Thanks.

Depends on where you&#039;re at &amp; what type of OWS you want to do.&nbsp; <br /><br />If you&#039;re going to do Ocean swimming, then any beach in the Hamptons is a good beach!&nbsp; Definitely wear a wetsuit, as ocean temps right now are only in the mid-50s.&nbsp; It&#039;ll be brisk (SERIOUSLY brisk!), but you should be able to swim for a good 20 to 30 mins without a problem.&nbsp; <br /><br />If you&#039;re going to swim in Peconic Bay, the water temps will be somewhat warmer (but still brisk), but you&#039;ve got to be VERRRYYY careful about boats if you&#039;re not in a &quot;protected&quot; swim area.&nbsp; If you can get someone to kayak along side you, that&#039;s a great idea.&nbsp; <br /><br />If you&#039;re going to be swimming alone, just make sure you&#039;ve got someone on the shore who knows what you&#039;re doing, and ALWAYS stay within 500 meters range of the shoreline when temps are this cold.&nbsp; If you&#039;re swimming &amp; you start to get confused, that means you&#039;re going hypothermic.&nbsp; Get onshore.<br /><br />Hope this helps!<br /><br />Take care,<br /><br />Brian<br /><br />

Not satisfied with any of the world's religions, Brian decided to go it alone... Welcome to the Church of Triathlology!

Thanks Brian, my friend&#039;s house is right on the peconic bay in the cold spring pond area. I am going mid week, will probably swim thursday, so I am just going to map about a few hundred meters along the shore and just swim back and forth. And yes, I have a wetsuit, I went in the ocean the other day at the beach (for a second with friends) without one, and I regretted it. <br /><br />-Toby
