On Saturday, August 9, 2008 Lavallette, NJ will be the site for New Jersey's first USMS sanctioned Open Water One Mile Masters Championships! This event will be a coordinated hosting effort by both the Ocean County YMCA and the Lavallette Beach Patrol.

There will be two separate waves for the event with the One-Mile Masters Championship starting at 8:00am and the One-Mile Open Championship starting at 8:10am. Historically, the Lavallette Beach Patrol have set up a well-marked course and have run an excellent event. Electronic chip timing by Compuscore has been added to this year's event. For all you USMS swimmers contemplating your first Open Water Swim, here is your opportunity to swim in a wave with just your fellow Masters swimmers as you round that first buoy! Mark your calendars for August 9th and we hope to see you there!! Bring a friend....USMS One-Event registration will be available on site
