I am a member of many forums and a number of FB groups. They both have their place but the one is not a substitute for the other.
It would be a big mistake closing this down and going the FB route...

Also made it look totally effortless, hardly kicked either.

I kept on looking...

Anyway I have done a bunch...

I hope to find some clean water next week when I plan on joining some TI coaches and students for an open water swim north of Tel Aviv. If it works out I'll report back here.

Hi Stuart. It was this incident 10 years ago. Same spot that we swim every Friday at 7am.
The spot is not really significant. Like all accidents it's a question of the wrong place at the wrong...

The triathlon group I swim with had one of their colleagues taken by a shark a few years ago. They actually ended up pulling the body out. Naturally some members have been put right off. The rest...

Thanks Stu. Just did another open session this morning. Wow, I felt like a cork bobbing on the ocean. Rough conditions but spurred on by the others I persevered.

Hi Tom,
Nice to hear from you and your always to the point posts!

My sighting is no good, partly technique and partly what to look at.
I start off each swim being able to sight on fellow swimmers...

Sclim, that's exactly what I am finding in open water. I proved it again on my Sunday swim. With no real fixed reference point it's hard to quantify but it was certainly the feeling that I got. Of...

Tom,
Those are some great objectives. Today I swam 100 at 15 SPL, then swam the same at 17 SPL, same speed. One conclusion, why use 17 strokes for what can be achieved only using 15! Another...

What I am noticing is that you have a bit of a windmill stroke, left arm forward while right arm is back, as a result your hips drop. Be...
