Many race directors of open water swims have neglected to make race results available at the race site at all. Rather, they post results online one, two, three days later. In my view, that takes away from one of the purposes of doing the event. The chatter around the race site among friends and participants about how they did is a fundamental part of the experience. Race fees seem to have gone up a lot this summer, yet we seem to be losing that aspect of the event. I suggest that posting results at the venue within one hour of the finish should be a `"best practice" for race directors, at the least.
