Gearing up for The Swim
To family and friends, this will be my 14th year swimming across the Bay. Every year I look forward to the experience. The training, the early morning drive to Newport, the annual reunion with old friends, the chaotic start, the deep green water, the beauty of the Newport bridge, and the satisfaction of pulling into Potter Cove. And every year is different. Last year a summer nor'easter churned off shore, forcing the Swim to be cancelled for only the second time in 41 years. What a disappointment! In some years the water is as smooth as glass, in others the tide drags you off course. There are always fish and sometimes nipping crab larvae.
Every Swim is a celebration this beautiful Bay. And every Swim is a chance to help Save The Bay continue its amazing work. This is the one time of the year I ask you to support my efforts by donating to Save The Bay. Every dollar counts. Every dollar helps.
Thanks for supporting the cause!
