Pro tip!

Open water swimming takes place on the lake at Jean-Doré Beach, so it's important that swimmers are able to do the crawl swim over a 300-metre stretch and are comfortable swimming in deep water. Also, we recommend that swimmers have a swimming buoy in open water. And, since the water can be cold early in the season, you should bring a wetsuit because there are no wetsuit rentals on site.
