The 20th annual Buzzards Bay Swim is scheduled to take place on Saturday, July 13, in New Bedford, Massachusetts, and swimmers can register free through April 15.
The Buzzards Bay Swim—the major fundraising event for the Buzzards Bay Coalition—is a 1.2-mile open-water course across outer New Bedford Harbor, starting at Davy’s Locker in New Bedford’s South End and ending at Fort Phoenix State Reservation in Fairhaven. The Swim draws participants of all ages and abilities, including families, swim teams, serious competitors, and individuals seeking a new fitness challenge. Three hundred swimmers are expected to participate in this year’s Swim.
The Buzzards Bay Swim is the Bay Coalition’s longest-running fundraising event. All funds raised from the Swim will support the Bay Coalition’s work to restore clean water, conserve natural lands and engage the community in protecting Buzzards Bay.
