The Flathead Lake Swim Series consists of a 5 km swim on Friday night, a 10 km Flathead Lake Swim on Saturday morning, a 0.5-mile and a 1-mile swim held on Sunday morning in July at the Big Arm State Park in Montana.

Neoprene and bioprene competitors participated in the 4-race charity event that donated 100% of its proceeds to the Enduring Waves Foundation. The Enduring Waves Foundation assists children in Montana financially with their medical expenses.

The top male and female with the best overall combined time for all four events were deemed the Flathead Lake Monster. Race director Emily Von Jentzen reports, "We had chilly water this year so while we had over a dozen complete all four races, only four of us went no wetsuit. Only those competing without a wetsuit were eligible for the Flathead Lake Monster overall competition."

Shawn Pinder from Canada won for the men and Von Jentzen won the women's division.

Cumulative Times for the Flathead Lake Monster:
1. Shawn Pinder 4 hours 29 minutes 23.2 seconds

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.
