My husband swam competitively in high school and college and said you should slow down and pass folks when you're between the flags. He said that you should avoid passing people between the flags and the wall. The faster swimmer is usually responsible for making sure there aren't any collisions.

NOTE: I misunderstood him and posted this advice incorrectly before. This is mostly because (1) we rarely have to circle swim at my pool, thank goodness; and (2) I'm such a slow swimmer that passing people has literally never been a concern for me. Hahaha.

Hey there! Typically you do circle swimming. You start on one side, then when you turn, you move to the other.

“Life is not a journey to the grave with intentions of arriving safely in a pretty well-preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out and loudly proclaiming ... WOW! What a ride!”
