As we head very quickly to the end of January, the next Open Water Swim season continues to get closer. With that in mind, we at Canaqua Sports are working very hard to put our events together, as we head towards our seconnd season. I am very proud of how things have progressed as we have new races coming on board, and interest in what we do continues to grow.
