You’re in the open water swimming and you don’t…
…have a clue where you’re going!
So what should you do?
Well, open water sighting is what you want to practice.
What is it exactly?
Well, sighting requires you to pick up your head periodically and sight landmarks.
The best time to practice sighting is either before or after you breathe bilaterally.
This way you will be constantly sighting and you won’t lose your way!
Don’t forget to choose a highly visible landmark to sight. If you are in the water with a ton of other people, it might be hard to sight something small.
If you are just starting to practice sighting, start in a pool.
Try to swim 25 yards in the pool, lifting your head when breathing in an effort to make eye contact with a specific mark.
As you do so, try not to lose your stroke rhythm or body balance.
