mask, fins, and snorkel?
I am getting ready for the beach to beach power swim on St. John, USVI. We had a practice swim today. I was one of the only swimmers who swam for real. Everyone else wore fins, and used a snorkel. Luckily, there were only about 20 of us in the water. My complaint is, those wearing all the equipment seem to have trouble navigating the course. They don't feel the need to look up and see where they are going. So, I get fins in the face, or they just swim right into the real swimmers. the first mile, consists of trying to get away from assisted swimmers. I was just wondering if other races around the world, there is a category for assisted swimmers, or is that a Caribbean thing? I find it annoying.
