How far in advance to start planning solo marathon swim?

marathonswimmers.org - Sun, 26/03/2017 - 23:10

Hi folks, So, I have a swim I have been dreaming about for at least 4 years. It hasn't been done before, and I have access to support crew, a possible boat, a safety officer, and 1-2 kayakers to trade off support. I am looking to be the first to do this particular swim, following Federation guidelines specifically.

It's a swim of approximately 15 miles in length, although maybe 16 depending upon route.

Here's the thing--I have just been given the possibility of attempting this in June, which is, as we know, coming up quite soon. Does that seem feasible in terms of planning and execution? I have done a bunch, but clearly would have a lot more to do in a very short period of time. I am a super organized person---some might say anal but, ahem, my husband the peanut gallery can shut it! ;)

I'd love to hear your thoughts about this, and perhaps what you wish someone had asked you to think about when planning your first solo swims in this way.

Also, does anyone know how to reach Jeff Cooperman? We talked in St. Croix about his St. John swim and I'd love to pick his brain again.

Thanks everyone!! :)

“The greatest performance of all-time”: 10 Years Since Michael Phelps, Melbourne 2007

Swimvortex - Sun, 26/03/2017 - 09:36
This week marks the 10th anniversary of what was described as "the greatest performance ever" in the pool. Seven golds, four solo world records and a championship record at world titles in Melbourne 2007. Michael Phelp's tally was the precursor to the eight golds he would claim at the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games the following year. To mark the 10th anniversary of a special week, we dip into the archive and recall a moment when the job was done and media met Phelps and coaches Bob Bowman and Mark Schubert

New MSF Documented Swim - Dave Van Mouwerik - Lake Siljan, Sweden

marathonswimmers.org - Sun, 26/03/2017 - 07:20

Dave Van Mouwerik's 20.3-mile (32.7 km) swim across Lake Siljan in Sweden has been added to our growing library of MSF Documented Swims:

http://marathonswimmers.org/swims/2013/van-mouwerik-siljan

This swim was previously referenced on the Forum HERE and HERE. Also please see Dave's website for the swim, The Siljan Diary.

It is exceptionally documented - from the swim's original conception, and through its planning, execution, and recording. It reminds me why we created MSF Documented Swims in the first place - to show that the story and historical record of a marathon swim can go so far beyond a mere observer log.

Great work, @VanMou, and I'm sorry it took so long to get this published.

Groups in southern Wisconsin

marathonswimmers.org - Sun, 26/03/2017 - 03:06

Going to be in southeastern Wisconsin area last weekend of June. Any groups that meet up for swims? I'll be staying in the Ozaukke County area. Not sure if Milwaukee River is safe to swim from the Thiensville area and up. Grew up there, as a kid we'd water ski on the river, bit didn't swim much. Not sure if it's clean enough.

Coach Eddie Reese & The Longhorns: 14 NCAA Titles, The 3rd Threepeat In The Treasury

Swimvortex - Sun, 26/03/2017 - 00:50
If there was a moment of pioneering pace in yards that mattered more than most in the realm of colleges measuring themselves against each other in short-course yards as the NCAA Division I Men’s Championship came to a close, then Florida Gator Caeleb Dressel surely had the edge. 40.00, four laps freestyle. The day of the 39sec 100-yard swim is nigh. If there was one team that mashed the rest into submission, then it was Texas. For the third straight year, coach Eddie Reese and his Longhorn crew of staff and soldiers marched to the title for a record 14th time. The final scores: Texas, 542; Cal, 349; Florida, 294.5; NC State, 272.5; Stanford, 242

The 5th Stroke 10 Years On: When The USA Led Leap In Standards With A Drive Of Dolphin

Swimvortex - Sat, 25/03/2017 - 09:55
This day ten years ago in Melbourne, the heat was about to be turned up on swimming speed without a hint of material advantage. It was the eve of competition at a World Championships and the United States had been practising the art of dolphin-kicking out of starts and turns like it had never been used before. Then at the helm of Britain, Bill Sweetenham coined the phrase 'the fifth stroke' in an interview for The Times with this author. He said at the time: "The dolphin kick we're seeing here has to be considered the fifth stroke now. I think swimming has moved to a new era, a new level.
