3, 6, 9, 18 Mile Swims

Ayer’s Cliff, Quebec

We leave from Ayer’s Cliff, Quebec at 10 am and swim the 9-mile length of the lake to North Hatley.  Shorter distance swimmers will be ferried out in a patrol boat and dropped in the lake to swim their chosen distance to the north shore.  Swimmers are then shuttled back to Auberge Ayer’s Cliff for a wonderful after party.

We leave from the Ayer’s Cliff Public Beach, across from College Servite, 470 Main Rue, (Route 141) Ayer’s Cliff, QC J0B 1C0, Canada   For the chart of the swim course CLICK HERE  Marathon Swim #1.  18 milers leave from North Hatley, swim south to Ayer’s Cliff and then back to North Hatley.

Fee for 3, 6, and 9 mile swim: $175

Fee for 18 mile swim: $425

US and Canadian Dollars accepted at par.  Because of the substantial local support we receive, landowners and summer renters of property in the towns surrounding Lakes Massawippi and Memphremagog can swim at half price.

All swimmers must be accompanied by a kayak or SUP.  If you need us to provide one, there is an extra fee of $150.  If you have a kayaker but need a kayak, we can arrange for a kayak rental for $65.
