Have you received any responses? I am looking for the same. I am swimming in a pool, primarily for weight loss, but would like to try the Alcatraz swim this September. I too am looking for advice on training. I have looked into Total Immersion, a program for open water swimming, and have gotten some good tips there.
Good luck and please let me know if you hear anything.
