My open water swimming experience started in the 80s with a local 10 mile swim as a teen. My swims now include many 8-10 mile swim, including Boston Light Swim 6x. Longer notables, under EC Rules: Length of Lake Geneva 43 mi (8th to accomplish), length of Lake George 32 mi, Keuka Lake 33 miles, Sacandaga Lake 32 mi, Lake Memphremagog 25 mi, Lake Tahoe 21 mi, Lake Lugano 19 mi.
Coaching experience spans more than 2 decades and includes Masters, high school, and individual work. I built an energetic group in the Boston area and coached high school quite successfully.
I moved to the Florida Keys this year and have started coaching technique camps there. I also work virtually and in person with all levels of swimmer for technical analysis, workout design, and event preparation.
I just returned from my second set of swim camps in Évian France, where I worked with adult swimmers from all over the world. Their week culminated in an 8 mile crossing and an 18 k swim, and for each of them this was a personal record, which was extremely gratifying and exciting!
