S.C.A.R. Swim Challenge
Apr 26 all-day

A well established stepping stone to completing channel swims around the world starting with the English Channel, Catalina Channel, or around Manhattan Island in New York with 20 Bridges.  It's a swim for experienced swimmers and crew wanting to push their boundaries.  It can be sunny and calm or very cold and windy.   It's why we call it a challenge - because it's challenging for both the swimmer and their crew.    You never know what mother nature will throw at you.   It's not the environment for prima donnas - they don't fare well.   The people you meet are from around the world and the friendships last far after the swims are completed.  After completing SCAR you're ready for any open water challenge.
