The 2017 Cross Bay Swim is on Friday, July 14.

Applications will be posted here April 1.


Announcing our annual SplashDown Party! March 31 @ 4-7 PM

Meet other swimmers, ask questions about technique and strategy, learn about the event and its history. Many Swim committee members will be there, as well as veteran swimmers and kayakers. We meet in the bar of Captain Bill's Restaurant, Ocean Avenue, Bayshore during Happy Hour. They supply the food and cash bar, we supply the fun. We will hold a 50/50 raffle. Everyone is welcome, even if you are not swimming!  Please respond to our FaceBook event if you know you can attend, but feel free to come at the spur of the moment.


For the first time, we are offering at no charge to each swimmer a course tracking app, described in the Master Instructions. Be sure to read about this feature and tell us if you wish to participate by checking the area provided on the application form.
