MST Open Water Mini-Series:
MST ‘Oceans Treble’

Masters Swimming Tasmania is keen to recognise and support the ever-growing number of our members participating in Open Water events around the state. In conjunction with the popular Tasmanian Ocean Swim Series and in co-operation with Surf Life Saving Tasmania, MST will conduct an Open Water Mini-Series, the MST ‘Oceans Treble’. This will be conducted between December 2023 and February 2024. It will comprise any three of five nominated Ocean Swim Series events. We hope this will encourage more masters swimmers to participate.

Swimmers may score points at any three of the following five Ocean Swims:

  • TOSS: Bellerive Beach – BSP1200                                Saturday 30 December 2023
  • TOSS: Bridport – Swim the Pier                                  Saturday 13 January 2024
  • TOSS: Penguin Island Swim                                         Sunday 21 January
  • TOSS: Kingston Beach – Australia Day Swim          Friday 26 January 2024
  • TOSS: Devonport Pub to Club                                     Sunday 25 February 2024
