Onset residents may notice a flurry of extra activity around Onset Beach in the coming weeks as builders with the Valle Group conclude work on the Onset Bathhouse foundation for the season. Meanwhile, the Coalition is gearing up for another summer of sailing, kayaking, swimming, and outdoor exploration on Onset Bay.
Every year since his first Buzzards Bay Swim, biologist and swimmer Harris “Chad” Nusbaum has looked forward to the moment in the Swim when he can see the world from a new perspective. “The best part of all is probably when I look around and realize I’m a half mile away from land in every direction,” Chad says. “That kind of thing gives a sense of how immense the sea is, and can keep one humble. Just getting to swim across a bit of the Bay is a victory to celebrate.”
