2012 Seal Beach Rough Water Swim Results, Provided by Coach
The Seal Beach Rough Water Swim was one of our best attended
events to date! It is the first of the swims in the
SPMS’s Open water series. The eligible events are
listed on the SPMS website
The rules for the series are also posted on the SPMS website but
are summarized here. A swimmer must swim in at least three
sanctioned races. Points are awarded to the top ten finishes
in each age group only to SPMS swimmers Non SPMS swimmers are
removed from the rankings.
To make sure that you get credit for your swim, enter your name
just as it appears on your membership card. If you are beach
