USMS Disclaimer: The length of the competition course is in compliance and on file with USMS in accordance with articles 105.1.7 and 107.2.1, but as a bulkhead course, is subject to length confirmation.

There have been National Records set at previous EEX Masters Meets, so we are accustomed to the protocol and follow it exactly.
