Diego López Wins Swim For Haiti Before Continents Seven

Courtesy of WOWSA, Huntington Beach, California.

Just prior to setting off on his Continents Seven global tour, Diego López Dominguez defended his title by winning the 10 km race at the Swim for Haiti event on January 28th for the second year in a row.

From Haiti, he returned to New York and then worked his way to the 25 km Port to Pub race in Western Australia by training in Waikiki Beach (Hawaii), Tauranga (New Zealand), Sydney (Australia), and during finishing third overall in the 2.6 km Sand to Surf race in Mount Maunganui (New Zealand) in his build-up to the Port to Pub.

The 2018 Hotel Rottnest Port to Pub was cancelled due to exceedingly rough water conditions, but López is still pushing forward with his plans. "On the way back, I chose to fly via the Atlantic Ocean, so this will represent my second Round-The-World trip in six months - this time westbound and in 12 days."

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.
