2011 Potomac River Swim, June 4th

Each year, a group of 40-50 somewhat insane swimmers cross the 7.5-mile wide mouth of the Potomac River from Hull Neck, Virginia to Point Lookout, Maryland in an event to raise money for a variety of Potomac River and Chesapeake Bay organizations. And each year, a group of Boston Whalers (and honorary Boston Whalers) provides safety escort duty.
The swim is an all-day event on Saturday, and includes a spaghetti dinner on Friday night and a beach barbecue Saturday afternoon. I have a limited number of motel (okay, "rustic fish camp") rooms available for boaters. There is also camping space available at Point Lookout State Park.
The official website for the event is www.potomacriverswim.com .
If you're new to the event, you can get a little flavor of it here http://www.facebook.com/album.php?aid=15722&id=1667949173&l=1ae68a26a9 and here http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v470/GoldenDaze/PotomacRiverSwim2009/ ?action=view¤t=potomacswim.mp4 . Though I have to say, the weather was particularly nice that year -- it isn't always like that at the mouth of the Potomac.
If you'd like to participate, please email me (see the address in my profile).
