Chilly McFillies Loch Lomond 2 Way Relay Is A Go

A group of four women were complete strangers to one another two years ago, although open water swimming was their chosen sport.

But the quartet from England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales came together and will attempt to complete something which has never been done before.

"We will challenge ourselves with a gruelling 80 km swim up and down the length of Loch Lomond in Scotland," described Chris Sifleet.

"Our journey has already started as we have been spending countless hours training in the pool, but mostly in open water swims in all-weather conditions and temperatures. Our swim will commence between August 28th and 31st and we expect to be swimming for 30 hours."

They are doing this charity relay in aid of Cancer Research UK. "We all know someone who has been affected by this terrible illness and we are asking for your help to raise much needed funds to fight against cancer and save lives."

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.
