Celebrate the end of the summer season with the annual Arthur J. Ladrigan Swim Races and Family Fun Day at Bayley Beach on Saturday, September 12th. We’ll start with the Lighthouse Race at 10:30am sharp (a one-mile swim from Green’s Ledge Lighthouse to shore). Check-in for Lighthouse Race swimmers and their kayak escorts will start at 9:30am. Following the Lighthouse Race is the Buoy Race (a swim from the buoy to the shore). Last are the Children’s Swim Races, which are grouped by age and run parallel to the beach. After the awards ceremony, all are invited to join in the traditional beach games, which include a tug-of-war, a pie-eating contest and a treasure hunt.
