Join a Great Virtual Event!

There is still time to enter the 2023 Virtual Shore Swim!!

We welcome those who have done the swim in the past to sign up again and challenge themselves to increase their mileage and invite swimmers who have not tried this swim to give it a whirl. This virtual swim starts at the Sandy Hook beach and goes to Cape May for a total of 129 miles. There are 30 destinations in all and the idea is to swim to as many of them as you can in 6 months, from January 1 to June 30.  

To sign up for this free event, contact Linda at lindabk11@gmail.com. The swim began on January 1 and participants will need to sign up for the 2023 USMS Go the Distance (link here ) and log in their mileage on the GTD flog. If you’ve been keeping track of your mileage on your own, you can enter it on the flog all the way back to January.
