Reinke Hangs On, Jamie Ann Phillips Swimming Strong

Days 1 and 2 at the 2018 S.C.A.R. Swim Challenge are in the books.

The 9-mile (14.4 km) course across Canyon Lake proved more difficult on Day 2 than was the 9.5-mile (15.2 km) course across Saguaro Lake on Day 1.

But 59-year-old Stefan Reinke from Honolulu hung tough and maintained his first-day lead. Reinke's cumulative time of 6 hours 38 minutes is only 1 minute 50 seconds ahead of second place Jamie Ann Phillips of Tennessee who won Day 2 [and is shown above in the Swim the Suck race].

Race director Kent Nicholas summed up the conditions on Day 2, "It was a bit chilly at the start due to a release of water which may have helped with a little push. Overall, [it was] a great swim with past champions Gracie van der Byl and Matthew Schubert supporting fellow swimmers."

But with the 17-mile (27.3 km) Apache Lake swim coming up tomorrow, it is still anyone's race to win with Arizona swimmer Kurt Adkins on 4 minutes behind and International Marathon Swimming Hall of Famer Mányoki Attila lurking behind by 20 minutes.

Mányoki knows that winning SCAR is a four-day journey that includes swimming through variable conditions while facing difficult recoveries between swims. "Yesterday was the first stage in Saguaro. It was so hot...the water was warmer than I expected.

On the first day, I was more curious about who will be competitive over the next few days. My kayak escort was right next to me, trying to take me on the best line
."

Mányoki finished sixth on Day 1, but he has high expectations for the colder swims and knows the importance of recovery. "Recovery is a very important factor. On Friday, Apache will be 30 km. I'm about to do that [tomorrow]. Right now, I'm having fun and waiting for the next swim."

"Day 2 in Canyon Lake proves how marathon swimming can expose disappointment, discovery and daring among its enthusiasts," observed Steven Munatones. "Disappointment in experiencing a DNF. Discovery in how deeply swimmers can reach into their untapped reservoir of willpower and mental strength; and daring in pushing themselves further and further than ever before."

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.
