Nathan Payas Does Triple Crown Of Open Water Swimming

Courtesy of WOWSA, Manhattan Island, New York.

The July 14th edition of the 20 Bridges Manhattan Swim was a smoother, faster circumnavigation swim around Manhattan Island in New York than its previous version.

39-year-old Nathan Payas from Gibraltar not only won the race, but also completed the Triple Crown of Open Water Swimming, one of his many career achievements including setting a record in an unprecedented 24 km Double Round the Rock of Gibraltar.

His time of 7 hours 21 minutes was the last leg of the Triple Crown after his 9 hour 13 minute crossing of the English Channel in 2016 and his 9 hour 34 minute crossing of the Catalina Channel in 2017. It served as a charity swim [see here].

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.
