The coming weekend of July 9-10, 2016 features three premiere swim events for Connecticut masters swimmers.
On July 9, Sharkfest brings its brand race for a second straight year to Mystic for a 1500 swim “from from “A” Dock at Seaport Marine, up the Mystic River and under the famous Bascule drawbridge to finish at Mystic Seaport.” Consider bringing your wet suit as the water temperature is expected to be in the low to middle sixties.

July 9 08:00 AM EDT – Pre-Race Announcements
July 9 08:15 AM EDT – Race Starts

After the race visit Mystic Seaport, the Aquarium, go for a sail, or down the road to Misquamicut.
On Sunday Masters swimmers face a tough choice: Open Water at the well run 38th Annual Compo Beach Point to Point One Mile Swim or the 16th Annual Wilton Wahoos Master’s Summer Sizzler Long Course Meters Meet at the Wilton Y’s pool (outdoors in the summer) — one of only two long course meters meets in Connecticut this summer.
