  • Tethered swimming

    further to this topic I wonder if the temperature of the water is
    an important factor or whether it's salt or fresh water. Perhaps
    the star sign of the swimmer and researcher (maybe) is important.
    what about the rope or harness doing the tethering - could the
    materials used be of consequence?
    Then again there is the direction of the swimming and the degree of
    alignment with the earthlines in the area.

    In recent work at our lab with trying to teach starlings to fly
    underwater we found limited success with our work and the debate
    on tethered swimming has sent us back to the wading pool with a
    host of new ideas. Our results will be published in a forthcoming
