If you’re taking the plunge at the Buzzards Bay Swim — or just considering it — join us at the finish line at Fort Phoenix State Reservation for an open water swim clinic and event orientation. Buzzards Bay Swim Event Manager Deb Hood will give an overview of the event and answer questions about the Swim. YMCA Southcoast Swim Coach (and long-time Buzzards Bay Swimmer) Brett Pacheco will offer first-hand knowledge of the course and tips for improving your efficiency, stroke, and sighting in open water.

This free swim clinic is open to those who have registered or are considering registering for the Buzzards Bay Swim on June 24. Wetsuits are highly recommended if water is below 67 degrees. Bring your wetsuit, goggles, and questions, and we’ll jump in for a practice swim together! Feel free to bring friends that might be interested in learning more about the Swim.
