David Bosch Loved Life

David Bosch from Sunnyside, New York was a member of the Coney Island Polar Bear Club.

He participated in various winter swimming events from China's Taierzhuang Winter Swimming Festival to the U.S. Winter Swimming Championships in Vermont and New York.

He helped raise money for Camp Sunshine that provides respite, support, joy and hope to children with life-threatening illnesses and their immediate families through various stages of a child’s illness.

Iceman Tom Mcgann remembers the personable swimmer. "Yesterday we lost a good man. Dave was a member of the Coney Island Polar Bear Club, an international cold water swimmer, and a person who loved to be outside exercising. He was always smiling and had a good ready handshake. He will be missed by all of his family and friends especially by his good buddy polar bear Seth.

Dave loved to live life. He liked travel. He liked to have fun. It is important to love life. Do what you want to do whenever you can. Say you love them to your parents, spouses, children, and friends. Life can be great, but it can also be too short. Remember we really only have today so make good use of the time that you have

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.
