CONGRATULATIONS TO ALL OF OUR 2016 SWIMMERS. THE JULY 9TH, 2016 FI OCEAN SWIM WAS A GREAT SUCCESS.
Despite inclement weather, we had an exceptional turnout with a record 140 participants. The cloudy skies and rough currents did not dampen the spirits of our swimmers and made the finish that much more rewarding for them!
Save the date for 2017, Saturday, July 8th! We will offer the 400M, 1Mile and 5K distance swims. Check back with us in March for registration.
Sponsors and volunteers are always welcome. If you would like to be part of this one-of-a-kind event on the beautiful shores of Fire island, NY, please contact Coach Bryan Krut at 516-356-5306 or email @ firstname.lastname@example.org
PLACES TO STAY:
Fire Island is a beautiful seasonal resort destination. Ocean Beach is the metropolis of Fire Island and is located only 1 mile east of Atlantique beach. Ocean Beach has a number of great restaurants like Maguires on the Bay, as well as retail shops, bars, and hotels. Atlantique is an easy walk on the beach – just head west 1 mile (ocean side) or you can take a quick water taxi: Fire Island Water Taxi (call 631-665-8885). If you plan on staying at Ocean Beach, book it early as hotels fill up quickly! Here’s a link to Trip Advisor: Hotels in Fire Island. Make sure you select hotels in Ocean Beach!
