Beauty In Barbados

Courtesy of Kristina Evelyn, Barbados Open Water Festival.

Kristina Evelyn is relentlessly passionate about the Barbados Open Water Festival, an open water swimming festival in Carlisle Bay in Barbados with 1.5 km, 5 km and 10 km races.

Evelyn describes the event, "We offer guided 2 km swims in Carlisle Bay followed by a social at the Copa Cabana Beach Bar on November 2nd. Then we have another guided 2 km swim at the Port St. Charles Yacht Club on the Upper West Coast on November 3rd, followed by a social at the Port St. Charles Luxury Yacht Club and a guided 2 km swim at Miami Beach on the South Coast, followed by another social at the famous Oistins Fish Fry on the 4th.

On the 5th, we have two 1.5 km swims: The Swim the Bay and The Just For Fun swim in the morning, and then open water swimming clinics in Carlisle Bay in the afternoon with an all-day beach party with DJ music. Copa Cabana is a great place to chill out, have some food, some drinks and enjoy the day.

On the 6th, we have the 5 km and 10 km Swim the Bay races as well as the 4-person 10 km relay. On the last day, we offer After Party Cruises on the Jolly Roger Party Boat and Cool Runnings Catamaran.

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.
