1995/6 Long Distance Swimming Calendar                December 22nd, 1995
--------------------------------------

The following is a list of long distance swims for the rest of 1995 and
1996.  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 post an updated list to rec.sport.swimming and rec.sport.triathlon
approximately monthly.  I will send the list out by e-mail if you have
problems accessing usenet news, but I can no longer afford to send it by
mail (Canada Post) to those without e-mail!  Find a friend with internet
access!

The list is also available via the WWW, maintained by Osmar Zaiane

GradStudents/zaiane/personal/longswim/swimlist.html.

Note that where I do not have 1995/6 information, but believe the swim is
annual, I have provided the 1994/5 (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.
