Stefan Reinke Outduels Serbo Simeoni On SCAR Day 1

Courtesy of WOWSA, Huntington Beach, California.

Day 1 at the 2018 S.C.A.R. Swim Challenge is in the books.

The 9.5-mile (15.2 km) course across Saguaro Lake started in 72°F (22°C) water in air temperatures rising to 98°F (36°C) with and low winds.

Karl Pettijohn, a triathlete and mountaineer-turned-swimmer from Southern California, said with a smile, "It was not easy, but I’m now a marathon finisher [in 5 hours 15 minutes]. My right shoulder bothered me and hopefully it will feel great for tomorrow morning."

Lauren Grous of Texas reported, "Today was the furthest I’ve ever swum consecutively, in a pool or lake or anywhere. Let’s hope I can gut it out tomorrow."

Race director Kent Nicholas did a shout-out to a local sponsor, San Tan Brewing, for seven consecutive years of generosity and support with a top quality craft beer."

But he also hailed the men from the warm-weather states of Hawaii and Florida. "We had great conditions with little wind. The boys from Hawaii and Florida feel at home."

59-year-old Stefan Reinke of Honolulu held off 52-year-old Serbo Simeoni of Safety Harbor, Florida by 20 seconds. On the younger side of the equation, 32-year-old Jamie Ann Phillips was the fastest woman on Day 1, only 3 minutes behind Reinke.

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.
