People who are fond of White Water Swimming (or hydrospeed) of all kinds of backgrounds and of all countries can meet on a privileged meeting place: the DreamNev.org site. Its mailing list makes it possible to tighten the links and gives rise to a network of swimmers.
For the first time, Swiss swimmers of the Hydrospeed Swiss Team take part in a competition organized in France. These same Swiss swimmers get together with French swimmers in the Alps for three days and take part in a meeting organized by Eau Vive Plongée Orléans on the Dora Baltea in July.
The Hydrospeed Swiss Team organizes the first international meeting of hydrospeed which brings together French and Swiss swimmers in the Alps.
On the Gens de Terre in the middle of Quebec, 5 white water swimming friends from Switzerland, Canada and France make a 5-day expedition and decide to create an international association to promote and develop hydrospeed in the world: RIPH is born.
You can have a look at the report of this expedition on DreamNev.Org
