Prior to 2018 and the formation of the Lake Tahoe Open Water Swimming Association, Tahoe swims were independent marathon swims and not governed by an official local sanctioning organization. These swims can be found in the LongSwims Database, a Marathon Swimmers Federation project. Many thanks to Dave Van Mouwerik who assembled complete records of these historical swims.
