Save the Bay Swim Saturday at Potters Cove

Save The Bay will host its 37th annual bay swim on Saturday, July 20. More than 400 hundred swimmers from across the country, joined by up to 200 kayakers, will take part in the 1.7-nautical mile course off the eastern shore of Conanicut Island in the East Passage of Narragansett Bay.

Registration begins at 8 a.m., and the swim will start at 10:40 a.m. The completion party is from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. This is the first time the swim will start and end at Potters Cove due to sequestration cuts by the Department of Defense that affected Naval Station Newport.

Additional swimmers will participate remotely, swimming in open waters or pools as far away as Rome, Italy.
