The 3rd Annual Weeki Wachee Warrior Challenge will be held this September in the Weeki Wachee Spring, where spectators can watch the races in addition to the regularly scheduled mermaid shows from the underwater theater of the State Park.
The Wreck Racing League organizes the event, in honor of our wounded veterans. Formula H2O® is the exciting underwater sport which features scuba divers racing on diver propulsion vehicle’s (DPV). The Weeki Wachee Warrior Challenge will combines this thrilling new sport with specialized SCUBA training and competitive underwater events created specifically for veterans who have been injured while serving in the United States armed forces.
This three day event provides specialized SCUBA training and benefits the non-profit organization SOF Bionic Warriors, which provides assistance to wounded veterans and families of U.S. Special Operations forces. SCUBA diving exhibitors, equipment manufacturers, and veterans all come out for this event.
It all happens from September 20th thru 22nd, 2013, with the first day dedicated to specialized dive training followed by a full day of race practice. Sunday 22nd is the final race day, when all the divers will compete in their own class.
