1/2 mile ocean race?

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Swimming : One Thread

I swam a 31 minute 1/2 mile in the pool. I would like to try an ocean race of the same distance. I have no concept of swimming times. My only race was a sprint triathlon with a 500yd swim. Where should I expect to finish? I don't care if it's last place, as long as I know it could very well happen. Laurie

An average swimmer would probably swim a mile in about 25 minutes. In the ocean however, the times would probably be slower. It is great that you are swimming! Keep it up:)
