Swim the Bay, Save the Bay.
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
