Got Floaties?

Kick start spring by attending a presentation by open water swim champion and Triple Crown winner Jim Barber on Tuesday, March 13, 2012 at 7pm in the Lora Hussey Room. Learn what it takes to be an endurance swimmer as Mr. Barber talks about his experiences swimming the English Channel, Manhattan Island, Strait of Gibraltar and other open waters, where challenges include water temperature, currents and tidal flow, whitecaps, sun glare, rain, lightning, sharks, jellyfish and other stinging marine life.

According to Open Water Source, “Open water swimmers, in general, tend to be adaptable, energetic and optimistic individuals- for the sport demands flexibility, above-average health and a positive outlook.” Meet just such an individual when you come to Mr. Barber’s program at the Library.
