Stop swimming in circles and challenge yourself to reach the opposite shore at the 21st annual Buzzards Bay Swim, Saturday, June 28, 2014. This 1.2 mile open-water point-to-point swim begins in New Bedfords outer harbor and ends with a breakfast celebration on a sandy beach in Fairhaven. This fully-supported event, a favorite among athletes looking to improve their time, or train or qualify for a triathlon, includes multiple starts for more accomplished swimmers and for swimmers who prefer to have a safety kayak escort.
By participating in the Buzzards Bay Swim, you are making the statement that clean water and a healthy environment are important and helping to raise much needed funds to help protect our precious Buzzards Bay. Your fundraising ($150 minimum) will go directly toward education, conservation, research and advocacy programs at the Buzzards Bay Coalition. Early-Bird Registration is free through April 1st, $10 from April 2-May 15, and $25 on a space-available basis from May 16 until June 28.
This is a great training swim for triathlon competitors and is appropriate for fit families as well.
Address: Start at Davys Locker, 1480 E Rodney French Blvd, New Bedford and Finish at Fort Phoenix State Beach, Green Street, Fairhaven, MA
