swim event has been very successful with about 200 swimmers. It is a
great swim in a calm ocean water cove. Even in a hurricane the water
will be swimmable. In
fact, in 2004 we ran the event in between two hurricanes and it went
great! We had over 40 swimmers who braved out the weather. Awards given
to top three finishers in each age group. Wetsuits are suggested for
this swim, but not required. The water is very calm in the cove, which
is located in Salem Harbor.
Collins Cove is
located on Webb Street which is off Bridge Street. Follow signs to Salem
Willows and you will see us. We are the cove on the left heading
towards the Willows.
