Open Water
The Davis Aquatic Masters Lake Berryessa is 1 June. The Lake Del Valle Open Water weekend in 8-9 June. It features Pacific's two Long Distance open water swim's, the 10K and 5K and this year it will have the US Masters Swimming One Mile Championships.
We are extremely fortunate in Pacific to have many open water venues to swim and to compete. The  PacMasters Committee also was able to put resources into the open water program so that we could have a full open water season.
Fun, fitness and competition
