26th Annual Marathon
On Saturday August 3, 2013, the 26th annual SWIM Across the SOUND was held on Long Island Sound.
Over 200 swimmers and 100 boats slugged their way through 2-3 ft seas to complete a challenging 15 1/2 mile Swim marathon from Port Jefferson N.Y. to Black Rock Harbor, Bridgeport. Ct.
East End Yacht Club has supported the SWIM for many years with volunteer boat Captains and crew members, with Captain’s meetings, and with other services. This year was no exception as our members continued to participate in the event.
The following Boat Captains took part in the 9-10 hour marathon.
In addition, Gene Boone, Pete Sorrentino, and Gary Maffe signed up but were unable to participate.
The Swim raises money to cover related expenses for cancer patients and their families via donations. The Swim is sponsored and cordinated by the Saint Vincent’s Medical Center Foundation, 2800 Main Street, Bridgeport, Ct. 06606.
