Those Post-Swim Waffles Were Excellent

After an open water swim, especially a long one or a hard one, food just seems to taste so much better than usual.

And that seemed to be the case at the Kingdom Swim in Vermont were the most delicious waffles were shared by the swimmers. "Those were the best tasting waffles that I have ever had," was the general consensus of the swimmers, both young and older.

And making of the waffles was also a treat for the volunteers Roger and Marie Raboin.

The married couple helped out all day long while celebrating a very special day at the Kingdom Swim. "We had a great time making waffles along with numerous other tasks - teamwork all the way. The crew in "kitchen central" were pleasant and fun to work with and we enjoyed many laughs while getting the job done. The food was fabulous, an almost never ending supply. A day like Saturday makes me look at Newport with fresh new eyes, taking pride in our gem of a lake. Saturday was our 50th wedding anniversary and we chose to spend it in a fun way by giving back to this beautiful community. Life is good!"

The Other Shore follows world record holder and legendary swimmer Diana Nyad as she comes out of a thirty-year retirement to re-attempt an elusive dream: swimming 103 miles non-stop from Cuba to Florida without the use of a shark cage.

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. Timothy Wheeler’s documentary brings Diana Nyad’s extraordinary adventure to life as Diana sets out to prove that will and determination are all you need to make the unimaginable possible.

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...
