She is allowing me to share her race report from her first race with you.

    The open water swim was started in 1994 in honor of Masters swimmer Steve Omi's life. Steve passed away from cancer one month before his 37th birthday. He was well liked and respected by his fellow swimmers. He was an inspiration in life and throughout his battle with cancer his strength and fortitude was the impetus for starting a scholarship fund to honor his memory. This open water swim is a fundraiser for a scholarship to be awarded to a local graduating senior planning to swim at the collegiate level. The recipient is not necessarily the fastest swimmer. Preference is given to a senior that has shown dedication to swimming and been an inspiration to other swimmers. Our desire is to acknowledge a student that treats others with respect, provides a role model, and takes a positive approach to life. These traits represented Steve Omi's character. The money raised from the event goes for actual costs and to the scholarship fund.

    Open Water Swimming
    Open Water Swimming has something for each swimmer. For the highly competitive swimmer, there is the contest of how fast the swimmer can navigate the course. For the recreational swimmer, it is the time to enjoy the fresh taste of the water, to enjoy the lake or ocean. For the new swimmer it there is a challenge of navigation or knowing where you are on the course and chosing the right course. In open water swimming there are bouys to let you know where the course is. There are turn bouys to let you know where to turn. And there is the finish line. Sometimes there are cross winds or currents, so you plan your course. These swims are part of the Open Water Points Competition will be kept up to date so you can check your standing. The Points competition is considered unofficial. You must be a member of Pacific Masters to participate in these swims. You can register on line , then register for the swim

    Introduction
    In my many years in this sport, I have never seen any reasonably complete article in the magazines dealing with open water swimming (they seem to rehash the same basic stuff every few years). A lot of them talk about how to draft, or tell you to look up every few strokes to stay on course, but very few seem to deal with the subject in much detail. So last summer, I started to gather my thoughts and experiences on the subject. I finally got back to it just now. Rather than deal just with racing in open water, I have tried to deal with both swimming for fun and racing. I welcome all comments ! (Did I forget anything? Am I completely off base? Are there any other tips that you have found particularly helpful?) Enjoy!

    BELOW:
    On left are more details on Umbra and Ted background and on right (gray bar) links of significance to marathon (over 10 miles, primarily!) solo and professional swims and swimmers....
    ..Umbra, born about June, 1990 and found six months later as an unclaimed stray, was adopted by Ted Erikson and Diane Richards. Of sleek body and short all black hair, her lineage is unknown, but even as a puppy she exhibited a Labrador's love of water and a Greyhound's love of running. Umbra began swimming tandem with Erikson in Lake Michigan during the summer of 1991, establishing a benchmark of a 32-minute mile. Over the summer of 1992, Umbra decreased her mile time to 28.5 minutes and covered distances up to three miles while pacing Nial Funchion, who went on to complete an English Channel crossing that year. Umbra has pioneered canine swimming with four 'first' records filed with the Guinness Book of World Records * A round trip Peace River crossing in Port Charlotte, Fl on 3/9/94 (2.4 miles,65 min.)
