1998 Long Distance Swimming Calendar                 June 15th, 1998
------------------------------------

| The following is a list of long distance swims for 1998.
I have provided all the information I have at this point in time.  
If you have any further information or notice any mistakes, *please* let 
me know!  

| I plan to notify rec.sport.swimming and rec.sport.triathlon when an 
| updated list is available, and post updates on the web.

I plan to post an updated list to rec.sport.swimming and rec.sport.triathlon
| as time permits.  I will send the list out by e-mail if you have 
| problems accessing usenet news.

| Old versions are available at:

Bill Black (whblack@ix.netcom.com) has set up:
   http://ourworld.compuserve.com/homepages/swim/
David Tree (tree@unb.ca) has set up:
   http://www.unb.ca/web/Masters_swimming/index.html
| If someone posts the new version on his/her web site, please let me
| and rec.sport.swimming/rec.sport.triathlon know!

| Note that where I do not have 1998 information, but believe the swim is
| annual, I have provided the 1997 (or earlier) information, and the date 
is given in [ ]s.  The swims are presented in approximately chronological 
order.  I have tried to make the list as international as possible, so 
country names and country telephone codes and time zones are provided as 
necessary.  (Remember to calculate the time difference before calling!  
Times may be different by an hour in summer.)

The first line gives the name and distance(s) of the swim(s).  That is 
followed by the date, location, cost, sanction, age groups, prizes, contact, 
comments, and who provided the information.  Comments include information
such as air and water temperature (avoiding terms such as "warm" and "cold"),
sun/wind/waves/tides/currents, course format (triangular, point-to-point, 
etc.), seals/sharks/lampreys/etc., accompanying boats, and any other 
information that will be useful to new and/or experienced open water swimmers.
Suggestions for improvement of the format are also welcome.

Please confirm any information given here before making any travel plans!

Thanks to everyone who has contributed information to the list.
