Colorful Lago Maggiore On The Open Water World Tour

The fifth stage of the Open Water World Tour was held in Lago Maggiore in Giona Park, Maccagno, Italy.

The 3-race event included the 2.5 km Smile Swim, the 6 km Hard Swim, and the 3 x 925m Relay and were held in sunny, calm conditions in beautiful water.

Rabio Riganti won the 6 km Hard Swim with Giacomo Simeoni finishing fourth overall as the first natural (non-wetsuit) swimmer. Camilla Montalbetti of Swimming Club Brebbia was the first woman ahead of Jane Hoag (non-wetsuit) and Giulia Uggè. On the Open Water World Tour, more points are given for the non-wetsuit placing in the Natural category compared to the wetsuit category.

Oscar Rubio said, "It is difficult to forget the spectacular rainbow of multi-colored buoys scattered around the lake on Sunday, but we move on to the next stop of the Open Water World Tour in California at the Crown Beach Race in Alameda on the 11th of August, an event organized by Odyssey Open Water Swimming."

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...
