2006 Ocean/Open Water Schedule as of Sunday, June 4, 2006

Races that are highlighted and listed in BOLD CAPS are a part of the SPMA Ocean Series 2006.
These races are sanctioned events, open only to swimmers registered with United States Masters Swimming in order to provide USMS insurance coverage to swimmers and event hosts alike. Points will be kept and awards will be given to the top SPMA-registered swimmers in each age group at the end of the season. An "X" in front of the date indicates the swim and date (or the cancellation of the race) is confirmed for 2006.

Non-sanctioned races are open to all swimmers (USMS registration not required). However, only USMS sanctioned races will have USMS insurance coverage.

To check water quality at any of the race locations, click on Heal the Bay's map, and follow directions to the beach you are interested in.
