Ferry Weertman Leads FINA World Rankings

Courtesy of WOWSA, Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates.

Ferry Weertman is leading the rankings in the 2018 FINA/HOSA Marathon Swim World Series heading into the season-culminating race in the United Arab Emirates.

His lead - 78 points to 62 points for second-place Jack Burnell and third-place Simone Ruffini, the 2017 series champion, seems to be a reasonably comfortable cushion to win his first World Series title.

After races in Doha in Qatar, Victoria in Seychelles, Setúbal in Portugal, Balatonfüred in Hungary, lac St-Jean and lac Mégantic in Canada, Chun'an in China, the world's fastest open water swimmer will be headed to Abu Dhabi in November for the season-culminating race in the United Arab Emirates.

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.
