Taking place on July 2, the event is open to everyone regardless of their skill level! For kids, there is a 100 meter swim. For adults, there are three options to accommodate any level- a .5 mile swim, a 1 mile swim, and an Ironman-length 2.4 mile swim, with the winner taking home a special conch trophy.
