An estimated 1,800 participants (adults and kids) will be swimming to their heart’s content. There’s something for everyone, whether they are veterans, first-timers or kids who just want to have some fun! In addition to the open water swim, we will also be hosting a lively line-up of fringe events for spectators, while they relax by the beach and cheer on their friends and family.
