Default Guiding blind swimmers in OW

I was waiting this morning to do a tri swim in the Schuylkill River for a relay team of (other than me) wheelchair athletes and started talking with a blind runner who is interested in open water swimming. Does any coach or swimmer on this list have any experience with this, i.e., swimming tethered to a blind swimmer and navigating for him or her? I think I've found most of what's available online and am looking for personal experience and advice; contact me offsite if you prefer at langw@infionline.net. This would, by the way, be an excellent subject for an ebook, would it not?
