This is now a Free Swim.
We were unable to secure Event permits for the three weekend swims
due to time constraints and the America's Cup. The advertised event is cancelled.
In place, we will have a Free Swim on Sunday without charge. The swim will be an escorted group swim with kayaks. Swim times are listed below.
