U.S. Masters Swimming concluded its annual meeting during the United States Aquatic Sports Convention in Texas by honoring dedicated volunteers, coaches and race directors with service awards.

The June Krauser Communications Award is presented to individuals whose communications efforts have contributed to U.S. Masters Swimming’s growth, improvement, or success. The award is named for June Krauser, the author of U.S. Masters Swimming’s first rulebook and a prolific writer and editor of many early newsletters and other publications.

The 2017 recipient is Cheryl Wagner of Potomac Valley who is an open water swimmer and charity swim organizer for the Potomac River 7.5 Mile Swim for the Environment (aka Potomac River Swim), a 12 km marathon swim that crosses the mouth of the Potomac River where it meets the Chesapeake Bay and divides Virginia's Northern Neck from Saint Mary's County, Maryland.

The distance freestyler is an avid masters competitor who has also competed in the Great Chesapeake Bay Swim at least 15 times to date.

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.

An Almanac for Open Water Swimming

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...
