Swimming With COWS From Coast To Coast

Carlsbad Open Water Swimming is an ocean swimming pod of 1,046 members located north of San Diego.

Co-organizers Kurt Weiser and Chuck Deerinck explains, "We swim in the ocean in the mornings. We prefer waves to lane lines. We don't mind if the water is cold. We can make it out through the break, body surf and see dolphins. We like it when water drips out of our nose three hours after a workout and can tell the water temperature to within a degree.

We lose goggles when the ocean decides to take them from us and measure our swims by city blocks, not laps
."

The COWS in Carlsbad have a similar group on the other side of the American continent that refers itself to C.O.W.S. (Chattanooga Open Water Swimmers), an open water swimming pod in Tennessee that was founded by Karah Nazor and organizes the 10-mile Swim the Suck event through the Tennessee River Gorge.

Since 2009, when Ram Barkai completed the first official Ice Mile in Lake Zurich in Switzerland, swimmers from 33 countries have been completed over 400 Ice Miles in seas, oceans, lakes, bays and rivers around the world all the way down to Antarctica.

Ice Mile is an officially recognized non-wetsuit ice swim by a solo individual held in water 5ºC (41ºF) or less under the auspices of the International Ice Swimming Association without the benefit of use of a neoprene cap or any other aid other than a swimsuit, swim cap, and ear plugs. Its shorter equivalent is the Ice Kilometer.

The term was coined by Ram Barkai, founder of the international Ice Swimming Association.

Until early December 2018, the following Ice Milers have been officially ratified by the International Ice Swimming Association:

Alisa Fatum Sets New Ice Kilometer World Record

Courtesy of Martin Tschepe, Veitsbronn, Bavaria, Germany.

Alisa Fatum made a huge debut at Stage One of the International Ice Swimming Association World Cup Series at the 5th Ice Swimming German Open in Veitsbronn, Germany.

Swimming in the fastest heat with the two former world record holders, Hanna Bakuniak from Poland and Julia Wittig from Germany, the 23-year-old from Leipzig took off and never looked back. She finished in 12:48:70 to break Bakuniak's record of 13:05.7 set in the same competition last year.

Fatum was so fast in the 1.4°C water and 2.0°C evening air that she even was faster than all the men including 18-year-old Sven Elfferich who finished in 12:52:30.

250 athletes from 19 countries competed in the first leg of the World Cup Series, including Richard Hirmer who completed the Ice Kilometer in the 1.4°C water after over 30 minutes. The boisterous event was organized by the ubiquitous Christof Wandratsch.

Neither Rain, Nor Wind, Nor Cold Stops Caroline Block

Courtesy of Evan Morrison of the Santa Barbara Channel Swimming Association near Santa Cruz Island, California.

Santa Barbara Channel Swimming Association reported a highly unusual and difficult channel crossing.

"The 2019 Santa Barbara Channel swim season got off to its earliest start ever with an astonishing [30.5 km] winter crossing by Dr. Caroline Block from Oxnard [on the California mainland] to Santa Cruz Island.

Starting from Silverstrand Beach early yesterday morning during a rainstorm and small craft warning, Caroline swam through some of the most challenging sustained conditions we have seen a swimmer endure. The wind laid down briefly in the late afternoon, only to whip up again after sunset.

Touching at a perilously dark and surge-y San Pedro Point after 14 hours 56 minutes, Caroline became the first woman (and 2nd overall) to complete a Santa Cruz swim in the island-mainland direction. It was also the earliest-in-year Santa Barbara Channel swim by nearly 4 months [in the organization's history].

Caroline's swim was supported by Captains Dawn Brooks, Alicia Stratton, and Todd Griswold; dory-rower Dave Valenzuela [shown above], crew Robin Rasmussen Rose and Michelle Squyer, and Santa Barbara Channel Swimming Association observers Evan Morrison and Dave Van Mouwerik.

The Life And Times Of Doug Woodring

In addition to organizing and promoting events such as the Hong Kong / San Francisco Ocean Film Festival, The Ocean Walk, the Clean Half Extreme Marathon Swim, the Cold Half marathon swim, Sheko Challenge, The Five, Kids Ocean Day, and the Grate Art, the relentlessly passionate Doug Woodring gives speeches and also organizes the Plastic Disclosure Project, the Plasticity Forum, the Global Alert Platform, and a variety of other events managed and promoted by the Ocean Recovery Alliance.

From Asia to Europe and many places in between, Woodring seamlessly merges the worlds of marine environmentalism, education and open water swimming.

Later this month in California, the Olympic Club member continues his speaking engagements at the Environmental Defense Fund on plastic issues and is assisting the recycling team in Japan who are making all of the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games gold, silver and bronze medals from recycled mobile phones e-waste.

He is also arranging for 25,000 plastic bottles from Istanbul and another 25,000 plastic bottles from Bali to be shipped to Japan to make clothing for the G20 Summit in Japan this year.

He also created the two-day Water Falling Festival in Cambodia where over 1,500 people gathered on the Ton Le Sap Lake. "Our goal is to expand this event to many of the villages surrounding the lake from year to year," explains the University of California Berkeley graduate."

Like Father, Like Daughter Down The Río Coronda

Courtesy of WOWSA, Río Coronda, Argentina.

17-year-old Martina Oriozabala Frettes will be the youngest swimmer in history to compete in the Maratón Acuática Internacional Santa Fe - Coronda, 57 km down the Río Coronda in Argentina.

The event has been held for the last 45 years.

The Club Mendoza de Regatas member said, "Santa Fe - Coronda is a unique event, it is a swimming party. It is beautiful. When I saw [the event] last year, I decided to swim it and prepared for the qualification race."

The qualification race is 28.5 km. To qualify, swimmers have to swim faster than 4 hours 30 minutes. Oriozabala qualified as the fastest woman as she finished in 4 hours 10 minutes.

Her success in the water is not surprising as her father is Gustavo Oriozabala who was inducted in the International Marathon Swimming Hall of Fame in 2001.

One of her favorite foods to eat during a long swim is sweet potatoes, a source of energy that her father hands her from her escort boat. "[Santa Fe - Coronda] is my first experience [in the FINA UltraMarathon Swim Series]. I want to enjoy it. When I saw the race last year I started to cry, imagining what it will be now when I reach the finish."

The boatmen, pilots and escort crews of the amateur and professional marathon races around the world, including the Maratón Acuática Internacional Santa Fe - Coronda, Maratón Acuática Internacional Ciudad de Rosario, Traversee international du Lac St-Jean, Ohrid Lake Swim Marathon, Novi Vinodolski, Maratona del Golfo Capri-Napoli, Jim Whelan Open Water Festival, International Self-Transcendence Marathon-Schwimmen, 40 Bridges Double Manhattan Island Swim, 8 Bridges Hudson River Swim, India National Open Long Distance Swimming Championship, SCAR Swim Challenge, Swimming Marathon of the Messinian Gulf, Open Water Swimming Marathon Kalamata, END-WET, 20 Bridges Manhattan Island Swim, and many others have to remain focused throughout their multi-hour races.

They have to manage the safest and quickest way through currents, eddies, waves and turbulence, they have to regularly feed their swimmers, and they have to keep their swimmers motivated while maintaining their own focus and ignoring their own comfort, very frequently volunteering their time and talents.

Heroes.

2014 Open Water Swimming Almanac



An Almanac for Open Water Swimming

An almanac is essentially a body of knowledge which is so complete that it enables people in different fields to make predictions about the future of their respective industries.

This, for example, was the purpose of the traditional farmers almanacs. It enabled farmers to determine as accurately as possible which crops to plant for the greatest harvests in a given year.

But the farmers almanac was just one example among many.
There are, of course, many different kinds of almanacs.

In fact, there is even one for open water swimming...
