This spring, sheJAMs and southern Maine YMCAs are offering training groups to help you get comfortable swimming in open water.
These team sports are open to everyone, whatever your level, so even those of us who have never played rugby or volleyball or inner-tube water polo are invited to join in and give it a try. And have a hell of a good time learning a new sport.
To help registered simmers train (the swim filled up the day registration opened), the Portland and Casco Bay YMCAs are offering training sessions right up until race day. Session one is almost over, but there's plenty of time to sign up for sessions two and three.
