Safe Sea

From Openwaterpedia

Safe Sea (or Safe-Sea®) is a sophisticated dual protection against the ravages of sun radiation and jellyfish stings and sun radiation, produced and distributed by Nidaria Technology Ltd.

Safe Sea was created by Dr. Amit Lotan, CEO of Nidaria. Amit earned his Ph.D. in biology from the Hebrew University, where he worked with United Nations scientists to research jellyfish sting protection. He established Nidaria in 2001 and has worked closely with such organizations as the U.S. Navy and Israel's Ministry of the Environment to test Nidaria's protective products around the world. His research has been published in Nature and other leading medical journals. For the past 10 years, Dr. Lotan has been collaborating with multi-national companies to provide sunscreen products which enhance safety at the beach.

Marathon Swims

Safe Sea has been used in marathon swims and marathon relays including those in the Sea of Cortez and along the California coast including the Monterey Bay. The Night Train Swimmers used it on their world record relay swim from Santa Barbara to San Diego in 2013 and by Vito Bialla, Richard Earnst, Susan Moody, Mauricio Prieto, Luane Rowe and Antonio Argüelles who will attempt an 88-mile (141.6 km) charity swim and relay across the Sea of Cortez in Mexico on 1 June 2014.

2014 World Open Water Swimming Performance of the Year

Patti Bauernfeind used Safe Sea on her crossing of Monterey Bay that is nominated for the 2014 World Open Water Swimming Performance of the Year.

"Three times was no charm for Patti Bauernfeind across the 28-mile (45 km) Monterey Bay. For 34 years, no one had replicated Cindy Cleveland’s once-in-a-generation non-wetsuit, non-protective gear swim across Monterey Bay. Bauernfeind, an accomplished channel swimmer in other venues around the world, tried and tried again and again. It was not the cold, the currents or the distance that defeated her. It was the swarms of jellyfish that she encountered and the venom that she endured which was too much for her. Failure to reach the other shore seemed to be her only option. But on her fourth attempt after innumerable false starts under the guidance of Joel Wilson and her tireless crew, lathered up with Safe Sea jellyfish lotion, the 47-year-old finally swam from shore-to-shore in the northern California waters after 13 painful hours. For her never-give-up mindset and dedication over the years to see her goal to fruition, for her willingness to raise money and awareness for Trust in Education, for her successful battle against the elements, Patti Bauernfeind’s crossing of the Monterey Bay is a worthy nominee for the 2014 World Open Water Swimming Performance of the Year."
