Where Is The Finish? Which Buoy?

Courtesy of Traversée internationale du lac St-Jean, Lake Memphremagog, Canada.

After 40+ km of head-to-hand racing, several athletes (Olga Kozydub, Silvie Rybárova, Martina Grimaldi, Celia Barrot, Tomi Stefanovski and Alexander Studzinski) misjudged and missed the funnel chute at the 2013 Traversée Internationale du lac Memphrémagog in Lake Memphremagog, Canada. When the pack neared the finish, the lead swimmers realized their mistake and made a U-turn to get back inside the funnel chute and swim - finally - to the finish pontoon

1. Joanés Hedel (France) 7 hours 24 minutes 43 seconds

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.
