One of the premier Southcoast events of the summer celebrates a milestone this year.  The Buzzard's Bay Swim turns 20 this year!  It's happening on Saturday, July 13th.  I'm there every single year...I wouldn't miss it!

All of the money raised goes directly toward the Buzzards Bay Coalition’s work to restore clean water, protect watershed lands, and engage the community in protecting Buzzards Bay.


What's nice about the swim is that the 1.2 mile course is achievable for swimmers of all ages and abilities.  The Swim draws serious competitors, first-timers, families, teams, and everyone in between.
