A WSC T-shirt Contest In Hawaii

Kaia Hedlund, president of the Waikiki Roughwater Swim, announced the annual Waikiki Roughwater Swim t-shirt design contest for the annual 2.4-mile iconic swim. The swim, the inspiration behind the 2.4-mile swim leg of the Hawaiian Ironman Triathlon, is an ocean swim across Waikiki Bay on the island of Oahu in Hawaii.

"The Waikiki Roughwater Swim Committee is searching for the perfect design for the 2013, 44th Annual Waikiki Roughwater Swim participant and volunteer t-shirt.

The design must be about 12 inches by 12 inches centered at shirt back and include the phase 44th Waikiki Roughwater Swim. The design should include a Hawai'ian/Waikiki/Ocean/Swimming motif
."

A US$300 cash prize will be given to the artist who submits the winning entry. Entries should be submitted by email to Hedlund at kaiawrs@gmail.com no later than April 30th. The winning design will be determined at the end of May 2013.

"The design should incorporate the spirit of open water swimming in Hawaii as well as the magic of Waikiki. A simple, classic design is preferred. Elements may include any of the following: Diamond Head, the War Memorial Natatorium at the start, the Rainbow Tower at Duke Kahanamoku Beach at the Finish, the clean clear water, and the abundant sea creatures such as Naia, Honu and the Humuhumunukuapua'a which are seen along the course."

At the edge of The Devil’s Triangle, tropical storms, sharks, venomous jellyfish, and one of the strongest ocean currents in the world, all prove to be life-threatening realities.

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...
