By The END, We All Get WET

Courtesy of END-WET, Mighty Red River of the North from North Dakota to Minnesota.

The END-WET (Extreme North Dakota Watersports Endurance Test) is a 36-mile (57.9 km) river swim down the Mighty Red River of the North from state of North Dakota to the state of Minnesota.

Longest open water swimming competition in North America is looking for volunteers (solo or pairs) to paddle the Red River of the North as company, safety, and support for open water swimmers who have traveled hundreds or thousands of miles for this race. Each support boat gets a US$150 stipend and food at the Blue Moose after the finish.

END-WET is also looking for motorboat owners or drivers to shuttle first responders and act as transportation for race staff.

Interested in the June 17th event? Fill out the volunteer form here and a member of the END-WET team will contact you soon.

For more information, visit END-WET.

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...
