Swim Across the Sound 2012

EAST END YACHT CLUB SUPPORTS THE 25th ANNUAL SWIM ACROSS THE SOUND 2012

On Sat July 28th 2012, East End Yacht Club showed its support for the 25th annual Swim Across the Sound event. Seventeen members were on hand for the event which was unfortunately cancelled due to severe weather and high wave conditions on Long Island Sound.

The SWIM is sponsored by St Vincents Medical Center in Bridgeport Ct. and it is the biggest organized SWIM marathon on the East Coast. Over 200 swimmers and 100 volunteer boats plus law enforcement vessels participated in the 2012 event. An abbreviated swim was held in Black Rock harbor in lieu of the regular cross sound effort. Over $400,000 in donations for Cancer survivors and families were raised by the swimmers, boaters, families, and friends.

The following EEYC members gave their time and efforts on behalf of the SWIM.
