Bilateral Breathing can help balance your stroke, which makes it easier to swim in a straight line in open water.
Just ask junkmiles, who told me this in the comment section of an open water race recap:
“I’m pretty good at sighting and my lines are pretty straight b/c I breathe bilaterally even in the open water. I don’t think people realize how much it helps in keep you straight and centered…I may be weaker on 1 side than the other, but I feel I more than make up for it by staying on course….trade offs “
