Whidbey Adventure Swim News: New Course for 2017!

Tired of going in circles? So are we!

Join us at 10 AM Saturday June 17 for a brand new race course. We've extended our route farther down the shores of Langley to be one long rectangular course. 1.2 mile swimmers will turn mid-course, while 2.4 mile swimmers will swim to the farthest buoy and return.

Online registration opens March 15 ($55 (USD) for 1.2mi, $60 (USD) for 2.4mi) and ends June 14th, with day-of registration available (10$ additional fee).

Our rectangular course along the shore is ideal for beginners. Nervous about the route? Come join us for a swim! We have a small group that swims year-round at Seawall. Watch our Whidbey Open Water Swimmers page on Facebook for swim posts, or contact info@swhidbey.org.

See you in June! And be sure to check out the event details page for additional fun and helpful information, such as our swanky raffle, brunch at Useless Bay Coffee, ferry times, and directions.
