Attention Open Water Swimmers:

Open Water season is coming soon!!  


While there will be some changes this year, and a lot of our open water squad will be graduating and heading off to college, there are still some exciting opportunities for OA swimmers to attend open water swims!

 Del Valle Open Water Weekend - June 8-9, 2019 - Already open for registration!

This is a very fun event, in close proximity to home, making it an ideal day trip.  OA SR2 Photographer, Fred Stambaugh, will be there to capture OA swimmers on Sunday, June 9, 2019 - Please RSVP by email to Fred ( so he knows who will be attending and who will be participating in each event. 


*** Alcatraz - Sunday, June 30, 2019? OR (Date to be Determined Based on Interest) - Private Crossing (No registration) - RSVP:   Lydia Percin (

This is an exceptional opportunity:  Peter Valvur has a contact at the South End Rowing Club in San Francisco, who is willing to organize an Alcatraz crossing for our OA open water swimmers!!  This may be the crowning achievement for many of the OA Seniors (and others) who have participated in open water events over the last several years.  Please email Lydia and indicate (1) If your swimmer wants to participate, and (2) If your swimmer is available on Sunday, June 30, 2019. 




Tahoe Open Water Weekend -   

The Percin’s are not able to host the team for an open water weekend this year.  However, there are two open water events in Tahoe which may be opportunities for someone to take over as Open Water Chairperson and organize a very fun OA trip:  Sharkfest Sand Harbor is August 18, 2019 OR Sugar Pine Point is August 24, 2019.  One option may be to reserve a group camp site for a real adventure for all the swimmers (and some adults).  If you are interested in organizing such an adventure, please contact one of the Coaches or Lydia Percin ( ).
