Attention anyone who likes to swim, canoe, kayak, or paddle board! Meet us at the Basin Harbor Resort and Boat Club for this race across the lake and/or back. The distance from Basin Harbor to the shore in New York is only one mile. Swimmers will take the Basin Harbor party boat to the NY shore and swim back to Basin Harbor (one mile) while those in a canoe, kayak or on a paddle board will race over and back for a total of two miles. Swimmers are REQUIRED to have a swimmer’s buoy on them and they will be accompanied by a flotilla of boats to ensure their safety.
End the race there, or go on to complete a duathlon by adding a 5K run.
As a note, depending on the wind the morning of the race, the water could potentially be choppy. It could also be quite smooth.
Everyone registered by July 15 will receive a free commemorative race shirt.
