Swim Safety Device Debuts In Ft. Lauderdale

Swim Safety Device Debuts In Ft. Lauderdale

Bruce Wigo, CEO of International Swimming Hall of Fame, is offering Swim Safety Device to all open water swimmers.

The convenient, lightweight, waterproof device solves a number of problems, especially for those who are visiting an unfamiliar stretch of beach or lake.

You can swim point-to-point and have all your personal items (mobile phone, towel, shoes, money) completely dry and safe with you. As the swimmers show in this video, the inflatable Swim Safety Device floats on the water and creates minimal drag.



The Swim Safety Device is especially useful for swimtrekking and open water orienteering.

The Swim Safety Device is defined by the Open Water Swimming Dictionary as a lightweight inflatable device that visibly floats behind a swimmer in open bodies of water. The device is easily pulled along by the swimmer and can hold one’s valuables (e.g., wallet, money, mobile phone, shoes, towel) as well as be used in emergencies as a flotation device. The brightly colored device is also easily visible by lifeguards and boaters and windsurfers on the water.

The International Swimming Hall of Fame is offering the Swim Safety Device to all swimmers in the 1-mile International Swimming Hall of Fame Rough Water Swim (more information on the January 8th 2011 race here).

Both Open Water Source and the International Swimming Hall of Fame endorse this product that can also be used during training, especially when swimmers are by themselves and in unfamiliar waters.

The International Swimming Hall of Fame is selling the Swim Safety Device for US$29.95 or for US$24.95 for a minimum of ten units.
