World’s Top 100 Open Water Swims

Be sure to check out the World’s Top 100 Open Water Swims over at Open Water Source. A few of them are quite ambitious (i.e. English Channel), but there are a ton of other amazing swims for those looking for shorter distances.

As for myself, I typically choose an event based on the venue. Some of the ones on my bucket list include:

Lake D’Annecy, France

Lake Ohrid, Macedonia

Sandycove Island, Cork, Ireland

Trunk Bay, St. John, Virgin Islands

    Well, it’s just assumed that L1 is the top swim spot. These are the 100 “runner ups.”
