Cesar Saade Jr. is a Brazilian open water swimmer who became the first swimmer from the state of Espírito Santo to complete the 36 km crossing of Leme to Pontal in 8 hours 53 minutes.

His swim set the new record for a solo swimmer without neoprene under the auspices of the Leme to Pontal Swimming Association (LPSA).

Adherbal de Oliveira explained, "On October 2nd, Saade made history by becoming the first swim from the state of Espírito Santo to complete the crossing of Leme to Pontal, the largest and most beautiful crossing in Brazil. The 52-year-old swimmer finished the beautiful course that runs 36 km along much of the edge of Rio de Janeiro, setting the new record for the solo without neoprene.

Saade began swimming at 11:00 pm on October 1st. During the night, he was able to observe the beauty of the illumination of the sights of the city of Rio de Janeiro, such as Christ the Redeemer and Sugarloaf Mountain

The Leme to Pontal crossing is governed by the Leme to Pontal Swimming Association whose function is to guide the athletes and carry out the entire bureaucratic procedure, as well as organize and paying the human and material resources that enable swimmers to complete swimming safely."

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.
