Description

NC Open Water Champs

Want to remind everyone about NC Open Water Champs, coming up June 5th!

This is a unique fun event that we missed in 2020.  Do your event then grab a basket of peaches and some homemade ice cream on your way home!  Parents and Masters swimmers, you may compete too!  We suggest the Military Mile which is earlier and separate, and you dodge swimming against the kids, unless you're really fast then try the 2K,3K, 5K or all 3 for Poseidon Award!  In 2015 GCY had the Poseidon overall girls winner (see Morgan Davis's picture below) and 7 Poseidon finishers, let's see if we can top that!

ENTER THE RACE BEFORE THE DEADLINE AND WE'LL BILL FEE LATER!
