Take A Deep Dive With 100 Days Of Blue

Courtesy of 100 Days of Blue.

On May 29, Dr. Wallace J Nichols will ceremoniously launch #100 Days of Blue at Lake Austin Spa Resort in Austin, Texas.

"Please join us (wherever you are) on Day 1 and for 99 days thereafter as we inspire people around the globe to connect with their water and share their story. This year’s campaign will focus on 100 crowd-sourced 'water words' that describe the wide range of emotions experienced by our connection to water.

Spending time around water is a summer tradition and one that has entertained people from all walks of life. Its impact on our lives is immeasurable and the many ways we intersect with water are countless.

Designed to shape the new story of water, ‘100 Days of Blue’ asks people to get in, on, near or under water daily for 100 days and to share their experiences through their own personal networks and a vast array of social media platforms.

This simple, optimistic gesture of expressing love for our blue planet demonstrates the vital role it plays in our health and wellbeing and helps us tell the new story of water each year throughout all 100 days of summer.

The backbone of this year’s celebration is based on 100 crowd-sourced words that best describe the cognitive, emotional, psychological, social and spiritual benefits of water. A new word will be used each day along with images submitted by participants engaged in 100 Days of Blue.

Our connection to water goes beyond economic, ecological and educational. We have a deeply emotional connection to water and many of us have found our lives irrevocably shaped by our relationship with it. Our mission is to reconnect people to water through deep, personal experiences and to simply share their love for it. Ideas and actions aren’t enough, unless they create movement. 100 Days of Blue is designed to do just that

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...
