Hi Everyone! I’m a regular pool swimmer but have never done open water and am looking to try. I’m trying to figure out which group swim to join.

I’m a decent swimmer in the pool–I do a mile a week on like 1:45 per 100 meters–and I’ve been in deep ocean before in more controlled situations (like for snorkeling). Do you think I can cut it in a normal group swim (and are there people at my pace who won’t have to wait for me)? Or should I do a learn to love instead?
