Saturday, August 17, 2019 – Ninth Annual Willoughby Swim – Venue for the 2019 Long Distance (5 Mile} USMS National Championship – A no-nonsense, 5-mile swim on one of the most majestic and pristine, glacially carved lakes in the Americas. We gather at 8 am at North Beach on Willoughby Lake Road (Route 16) in the Town of Westmore. We determine the most likely wind direction during the swim. We try to swim with the wind and leave from North or South beach at 9 am. Sandwiches at the White Caps Campground and all the steamed corn you can eat. Fee: $200. Cap 100 swimmers. (Note: we have raised the fee to cover the cost of attracting motor boats, pilots and spotters to cover the increased numbers expected for this event at the rate of one motor boat for every 10 swimmers.)
