Our Team's Yearly Events
New Year's Day Swim
Every year we have an open water swim to celebrate the beginning of the new year. Good food, drink, swimming, and great friends make this a fun event that you don't want to miss.
Our Annual Banquet - January
Every year we have a team banquet celebrating individual and team accomplishments from the previous year. Great food and drink, lots of great stories and photos, and spending time with friends and fellow swimmers make this a must-attend event.
Bumpy Jones Classic swim meet - June
The Bumpy Jones Classic is our big Sharks Masters fund raiser every year in June. The meet has been held, in different incarnations, for over 20 years. All team members are encouraged to participate by signing up and swimming in the meet. If you do not wish to swim, please sign up for one of the important volunteer functions. The Meet is named for our very own Burwell “Bumpy” Jones, a 1952 Olympian and lifelong swimmer. Bumpy continues to be an inspiration to our team.
Tropical Splash open water - October
Our annual open water swim, sponsored by our friends at the Daiquiri Deck. There are three distances to choose from: 1K, 2.5K, or 5K. This event now comes in regularly at about 400 swimmers and is hailed as a premier open water swim in the southeast. Read one competitor’s review. You can also view the course map. On race day, the perimeter is surrounded by approximately 20 kayakers and lifeguards with jetskis patrol the inside.
Shark Tank SCM Meet - November
The Shark Tank SCM Meet (formerly known as Bridge the Bay) is the other pool meet we host—so please swim in it or volunteer to help out. Many swimmers across the country don’t get an opportunity to swim short course meters, so this is an excellent opportunity to get yourself a national Top 10 ranking—are you up for the challenge?
