The Ajman City Swim will culminate the 2016-2017 UAE City Swim Series that offers open water swims in races in Dubai, Sharjah, Abu Dhabi and Ajman in the United Arab Emirates.

The races are 250m, 500m, 1 km, and 2 km in distance and take place in the winter season in the UAE between October and March. The events are charity swims to benefit the Charitable Al Jalila Foundation fund-raising for Road to Awareness.

* Dubai City Swim in October in Le Méridien Abu Dhabi in Abu Dhabi

* Sharjah City Swim in November in Sheraton Sharjah Beach Resort & Spa in Sharjah

* Abu Dhabi City Swim in January in Sheraton Jumeirah Beach Resort in Dubai

* Ajman City Swim on March 4th in Ajman Saray, a Luxury Collection Resort in Ajman

The Road to Awareness is the fundraising campaign of Starwood Hotels & Resorts that has been making a positive difference in the lives of children since its launch in 2008. Employees throughout Europe, Africa and the Middle East have raised over $5 million for children in need through this campaign. Raising awareness and donations for the Omniyat Dania project which invests the funds into medical treatment and research of childhood cancer in the UAE is the goal of the event.

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.
