Two Manuals have recently been sent to FINA Member Federations:

Open water swimming ,and in particular marathon swimming, constitutes
an exciting aspect of FINA. FINA believes in the rapid and universal development
of this discipline. To help promote these competitions, a new periodic
FINA publication is published twice a year. Its title is "FINA Open
Water Swimming Newsletter". Anyone who wishes to receive this free
publication should send their request, including a full mailing address,
to the FINA Office in Lausanne (SUI).
