Buzzards Bay Coalition Hosts 23rd Annual Swim on June 25

Buzzards BayBUZZARDS BAY – Set a resolution to make a splash in 2016 by signing up for the Buzzards Bay Coalition’s 23rd annual Buzzards Bay Swim on Saturday, June 25.

The Buzzards Bay Swim is a fun community event that supports a great cause: clean water in Buzzards Bay.

Swimmers complete a 1.2 mile open water course across outer New Bedford Harbor.

The point-to-point course begins in the South End of New Bedford and ends at Fort Phoenix Beach State Reservation in Fairhaven.

Now in its 23rd year, the swim draws participants of every age, ability and fitness level.

Many swimmers form teams with their friends, families and fellow swim team members.

Over 300 swimmers are expected to participate in this year’s swim, hailing from communities across southeastern New England and around the U.S.

This year, swimmers will enjoy a new state-of-the-art chip timing system, which will provide instant, accurate results as each swimmer crosses the finish line.

There will also be new youth categories to allow more swimmers to participate and compete for fun awards and prizes.

All funds raised from the Buzzards Bay Swim support the Coalition’s work to protect clean water in communities across the Buzzards Bay region, from Westport to Woods Hole.
