PNA Open Water "High Point" Awards

Turley, Angela - Friday, September 06, 2013

At PNA’s June meeting, the Board funded a new challenge program for open water swimming. Our LMSC has sanctioned 5 events this year:

  • Fat Salmon in Lake Washington – July 20
  • IGLA Championship in Lake Washington – August 18
  • Aqua Run in Commencement Bay (Tacoma) – August 25
  • Whidbey Adventure Swim in Sarasota Passage (Langley) – September 15
  • Last Gasp of Summer in Angle Lake (SeaTac) – September 21

The “high point” awards honor the top two male and female swimmers in each age group. To be eligible, each swimmer must swim at least two of the sanctioned events. The more events swum, the more points accumulated. Points will be awarded to the top 10 finishers in each event swum; wetsuit swimmers score points separately from those not wearing wetsuits. At the end of the season, points will be tallied and awards will be sent to the winners.

Details on the remaining PNA sanctioned events are on the pages that follow in this issue of The WetSet and on the PNA website .
