Guila Muir swims in the state of Washington with the Notorious Alki Swimmers in West Seattle.

Muir created Say Yes To Life Swims that offers swim excursions and open water swimming tours and adventures throughout the year and hosts an annual WOW (Women In The Open Water) panel discussion.

Women In The Open Water I was held in 2018. The WOW2 event will be held on March 21st.

Muir writes, "Do you want to expand your potential in the open water? Whether your dream is to swim one mile, ten miles, or more, this free panel discussion will provide tips and techniques to achieve your dreams. All genders, swim abilities, and athletic passions are welcome.

It is co-hosted by Triple Crown of Open Water Swimmer Melissa Kegler and Muir, and features panelists Stephanie Zimmerman, Kate Curtis, Heidi Skyrzypek, and Rose Filer.

Muir says, "Participants can expect to meet other swimmers, explore local options, and celebrate the open water swimming community in all its forms. Price Waterhouse Cooper’s WIN (Women’s Inclusion Network) is providing donations. The panel will address questions like 'How can I overcome my self-limiting beliefs?', 'What are relays? How do they work?', and 'How should I prepare to swim longer distances?'

WOW2 is on March 21st between 6:00 - 8:00 pm at the Price Waterhouse Cooper Café (at 1420 5th Avenue, Seattle, CA 98101) within the US Bank Centre Building.

Since 2011, we’ve been providing a world in which all swimmers experience challenge, exhilaration, and camaraderie

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.
