NYC SWIM

    Unfortunately, the 2013 Great Hudson River Swim is being canceled due to the anticipated high winds and small craft advisory together with the rain and unseasonably cool temperature that will feel like itís in the 40s—not good swimming, boating, or paddling weather. We will not be able to reschedule the event this season. Please feel free to join us any time between 9:25 and 11:00 at the start location to pick up your souvenir T-shirt and see fellow swimmers and volunteers. Swimmers will receive a 50% credit toward a 2013 or 2014 swim series event as per our cancellation policy.

    Date:05/25/2013 (Saturday) 
    Distance:1.6 M 
    Predicted Water Conditions:Approximately 56.0 °F to 64.0 °F (13.5 °C to 17.3 °C). Swimmers wearing wetsuits/non-traditional swimming attire will be eligible for awards in this year's race. The full wetsuit policy can be viewed here.

    There can be a substantial amount of chop in the water from wind & tide action. The waterways are salt-water and there is shipping traffic. There may be random jetsam & flotsam in the waterways.
