The Global Swim Series started on May 1st 2017 and officially wrapped up on April 30th.

Series rankings are based the result of 88 races across 35 countries throughout the Northern and Southern Hemispheres.

Ciara Doran is the Global Swim Series champion in the female non-wetsuit division. She dominated the division for the second year in a row and became the first person to win back-to-back Global Swim Series titles.

Dylan Kent reported, The Irish teenager Doran completed 15 races and amassed 1481 points, smashing her previous record of 1185 from last year. This represents the most points ever won in the Global Swim Series to date. She won by a whopping 620 points over an also very impressive season by fellow Irish teenager Eadaoin O'Raw who finished 2nd overall. Helen Adams of New Zealand came third. You may recall we highlighted Helen Adams as a swimmer to look out for way back in January when she was sitting back in 42nd spot.

Equally impressive to Ciara Doran’s overall point total was that she also finished at or near the top spot in all the races she competed in

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 tide is rising for open water swimming.
