Tiki Swim Workouts

Great group training opportunities

OCEANSIDE- New to ocean swimming? Afraid of the waves? Need practice sighting? Looking to build endurance? Want to freak out some fisherman fishing at the end of the Oceanside Pier? Well, if you said yes to any of these, then you have to come join us every Sunday for our weekly ocean swim.

Every Sunday the Carlsbad Open Water Swimmers group meets at 7:45 at the picnic tables on the south side of the Oceanside pier for an 8:00 swim. We have swimmers of all abilities, but you should be able to comfortably swim 1500 meters in the pool, and should be swimming on a regular basis.

This is a great way to prepare for TikiSwim4 and to find out about more swimming opportunities you can visit the COWS meetup page @ http://www.meetup.com/Carlsbad-Ocean-Swimming/

2013 Salt Creek Rough Water Swim hosts USMS Championship

SALT CREEK- The Mission Viejo Natedores Swim Club, is hosting the 2013 US Master Swim’s >1 but <3 mile open water National Championship. The event is scheduled for August 4, 2013 and will be taking place at Salt Creek beach.

There will be a 1.2 mile swim as well as 2.4 and 1.2 mile wetsuit swims but those swims will “not be scored and will not be eligible for awards.”

While we support this swim, this is another great reason to do the Tiki Swim. We have separate divisions for traditional and wetsuit, but when it comes to awards they are treated the same. I understand the need to be strict about the National Championship, but USMS treating those that use wetsuits as “less than” only hinders their sport. Even UCI saw the benefit of disc wheels, aerobars, electronic drivetrains and so much more.
