Big thanks to Jen Baker for contributing a Dixie Zone (southeastern US) open water swim calendar:
Evan, I would be happy to work on a New England calendar.
Also, is there any chance you can add a column to the US one that lists avg water temp (if known)? I know that would rule some swims out for me automatically (like Key West) because the water's too hot. Just a suggestion. Feel free to throw rotten tomatoes.
thank you, @slknight! I will contact you offline.
An integrated Northern California open water swim calendar (USMS + Water World + independent swims e.g. Tiburon Mile + Dolphin Club + South End):
Big thanks to @slknight for compiling a New England regional swim calendar for us!
Let us know of any additions/corrections.
I am updating 2016 Calendar for Mid-Atlantic region. Please let me know if you have any info on new events for region. I could also use some help from anyone with 2016 info regarding the VBLA Ocean Swim Series, Lake Moomaw Swim, Cedar Island 5K, Chris Greene Lake cable swim and Valley Forge Marathon Swim. Please send via PM and I will update calendar. Thanks.
Not many (any?) West Ozzies on here I presume, but thought some people may be interested to see what we have on offer down under over west.
Jump-started by @Leonard_Jansen and his friend Anya, I've updated the US Marathon Swim Calendar with all currently known 2016 dates.
Please send any corrections, new dates, or new swims through the contact form.
In addition to the US Marathon Calendar, MSF currently maintains 6 regional OWS calendars: Southern California, Northern California, Mid-Atlantic, Midwest, Dixie Zone, and New England.
Interested in developing a new regional calendar? Let us know!
Pacific NW, anyone?
I want to personally thank @Franco, @bluemermaid9, and @slknight for owning the Mid-Atlantic, Dixie Zone, and New England (respectively) open water swim calendars this year.
As a small token of appreciation, you'll be receiving an MSF silicone swim cap (or refund if you already ordered one).
Meanwhile... if anyone has any interest in Southern California, Northern California, Midwest, Pacific Northwest, or U.S. Marathons -- or starting a new calendar in a region we don't yet serve -- please let me know!
Quite a lot of people view these calendars via Google searches, so your efforts do make a difference in helping people find open water opportunities in their area - and bringing new people to the sport.
@evmo : Got my cap today. That yellow is rockin'! Thank you.
