Swimming over people

Is there a polite way to do this?

Thanks for that,  FB. Very helpful.

I think that I might try swimming across the pool during the busiest of the lane sessions, instead of along the lanes.
Alternatively my dolphin of a daughter could be persuaded to start after me and just keep ploughing over the top whenever she overtakes. That would be every 2nd or 3rd length.

We do drills in the pool where four of you swim alongside each other in one lane.  Its very crowded so simulates the start quite well.  If you can do the same in OW then that is a big bonus

Kk - in what way is it ironic?

Well I directed that at fb because we've talked a bit about officiating and I'm interested in his views now being that side of the coin.

My point is that bike rules are enforced quite rigidly in well organised tris, quite rightly as most of them are from a safety point of view predominantly.

However, the swim is always a free for all with virtually no rules. I just find it a juxtaposition.

Yep - I agree it's a contradiction. But I don't think it's ironic because they're not trying to make the swim super safe - ironic is when you bang your head on a safety canoe and drown!
