Soler And Moseley Offer Adventure Swim Camp

Matthew Moseley is taking a little bit of time off his marathon swims after completing two unprecedented swims this year.

In August, Moseley made the first swimming descent of the Colorado River through Canyonlands for 47.5 miles in 13 hours 56 minutes from Potash Point outside of Moab to the confluence of the Green River.

Earlier in May, he become the first person to swim 38 km (24 miles) from the island of Culebra to Fajardo in Puerto Rico in 12 hours 1 minute 55 seconds, called Cruce y Nado por los Arrecifes de Coral.

He is now hosting an Adventure Swim Camp together with Randy Soler on July 3-7th in Isla Verde, Puerto Rico.

"We designed this camp specifically for people to get out of it what they want and to have a good time in the open water," explains Moseley. "If people want to swim long distances, swimming tons of yardage will certainly be available, but we think of it more about having fun and becoming a better swimmer in the process. We have a good mix of open water on the beach at Isla Verde and one of the best 50-meter pools in the world available to us nearby.

There will be lots of free time for people in the afternoons, but with other optional things like dry land, stretching, yoga and meditation. I'm excited about doing night and sunset swims and probably a longer distance swim on the last full day with length depending upon ability

But fun is most definitely part of the camp equation. "We will have guest coaches like Carlos Lomba, DJs, live music, and other surprises. Not to mention the 2 hours of Horas Feliz every afternoon. Over the last few years, I have loved my trips to Puerto Rico and the culture there. The people are wonderful, the salsa music is amazing, and the beaches are even better."

The Other Shore

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. Her past and present collide in her obsession with a feat that nobody has ever accomplished. 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...

The trends are very clear.
The tide is rising for open water swimming.
