Great Swimming Opportunity for First-time Open Water Swimmers

The Committee for the Great Salt Pond’s fifth annual swim, known as The Great Salt Pond Swim 5-2019 will be held on Saturday, July 27, 2019 on Block Island, Rhode Island.  This will be a (1) one mile swim limited to 150 individuals, starting at Andy’s Way Beach, swimming out toward Beane Point, and returning to Andy’s Way Beach.  The swimmer registration fee for this event is $55.00, and registration will open on October 1, 2018.  This is a great opportunity for first-time open water swimmers and experienced swimmers.  The swim course is in a protected area with not much chop.  In addition, the swim will take place along a straight line, marked by buoys.  This swim is an annual fundraiser, serving to support our efforts to protect The Great Salt Pond, and provide funds for additional water testing in the recreational swim areas.  Go to www.CGSPBlockIsland.org, click the link 2019 Swim, and then click on the link"Swim Participant Packet" for more information, and be sure to visit our facebook page at facebook.com/cgspblockisland.  (Go to:  www.CGSPBlockIsland.org to view photos of all the past swims)
