Author

Captain Tim Johnson made major contributions for the support elements in marathon swimming, including the development of unprecedented computer applications that modeled swims allowing analysis of currents and tides. He was one of the founders of the Manhattan Island Swimming Association and was the organizationā€™s historian. His advice on current and tides set the standards and were partly responsible for the record swims around Manhattan Island. Captain Johnson has also consulted on swims affected by tidal flow in various locations around the world and the construction of shark cages.
