What Is Your IQ In The Open Water?

Courtesy of WOWSA, Huntington Beach, California. Your navigational IQ is your innate ability to swim the quickest course in the open bodies of water.  Steven Munatones explains, “Most often, this is the straightest course possible, but occasionally it is not depending on the currents, tides, wave height and direction, wind direction, and other factors. A swimmer with high navigational IQ has the innate and well-developed ability to swim straight as well as to use the elements in the most effective manner, from waves to currents especially when the conditions are less than optimal in rough water, low-light, or high-glare conditions.” Copyright © 2008 – 2014 by World Open Water Swimming Association
