Austrian lake swimming safety
I will be taking a two week holiday this July in Austria and will be staying at the lakeside village of Mondsee. In preparation for the Zurich 26.4k race in August, I am planning on swimming on the lake. Will be out in the water for about 4-6 hours each day, but wanted to know about water safety tips with boats. I normally train in protected areas (ie from boats) in the ocean in Australia so am pretty inexperienced in this area of safety. I am going to get an orange safety bouy to tow around my waist, but would like to know if this is enough? Are boaters in europe on the lookout for swimmers?
