Great advice above. Two things I’d add. Having experience powering through active, choppy water will be very helpful. And be precise and honest about your 1 hour pool swim time. Don’t guess, have someone actually time you. The race directors build the models of your swim based on that time. For me, the model held within 2 minutes.
It’s a beautiful and challenging swim.
