Bring on the Bay - Open Water Swim for Easter Seals

July 13, 2019

Saturday, July 13, 2019 will mark the 13th Annual Bring on the Bay swim event. As a result of the past success and popularity of this event, there are now two open-water swim distances offered:
o the traditional 3km, point-to-point swim across beautiful Britannia Bay starting at the Nepean Sailing Club and ending at the Britannia Yacht Club, and
o the new "Walk-the-Plank" 1500m, point-to-point swim starting midway along the 3km race and ending at the Britannia Yacht Club.
Both swims are open to swimmers of all ages and abilities and provide a healthy way to enjoy some friendly competition while supporting kids with physical disabilities, with all race proceeds going to a great cause: Easter Seals Ontario.
