from MSF co-founder and Documented Swims administrator Evan Morrison
The process for MSF Documented Swims will be a bit different this year, and going forward.
Documentation for each swim will be compiled and published on the MSF site with pending ratification status.
Documentation will be reviewed by committee of MSF Documented Swims “alumni” (swimmers or observers) in collaboration with the MSF core team. Once a swim has been reviewed, its status will change to ratified.
The following logos distinguish between these two statuses:
With that said, I’m delighted to announce the publication of 11 swims pending ratification:
