Andy's Channel Ladies Set The Bar

Courtesy of Andy's Channel Ladies.

Andy King escorted six women on a record-setting three-way relay crossing of the English Channel earlier this week that continued the tradition.

Andy's Channel Ladies included 24-year-old Nikki Fraser, 33-year-old Lucy Lloyd-Roach, 30-year-old Emma Ross, 28-year-old Natalie Massey, 35-year-old Jane McCormick, and 35-year-old mother Dee Llewellyn-Hodgson.

They set the women's three-way relay record in 31 hours 20 minutes 50.72 seconds, breaking Julie Bradshaw’s Ladies Relay of 32 hours 31 minutes earlier this week.

Andy's Channel Ladies just barely got under the long-standing record of 31 hours 21 minutes set by Sun Rice Australian Relay Team in 1993 (an all-male team with Cyril Baldock, Michael Renford, Baden Green, Greg Stewart, Peter Tibbets and Kevin Neilsen, that went on to set the initial four-way relay record of 43 hours 7 minutes), but just missed the three-way mixed relay record split of Sport City Mexico of 30 hours 7 minutes with Mariel Hawley, Jorge Urreta, Luis Pineyro, Omar Díaz González, Alejandro Moreno, and Mayalen Noriega who went on to complete a four-way crossing in 42 hours 11 minutes in 2007.

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.
