Provincetown Harbor Swim For Life

By Charlotte Robinson, August 25, 2019
Celebrating its 32nd year the Provincetown Harbor Swim for Life & Paddler Flotilla takes place Saturday September 7th. Since 1987 thousands of swimmers, kayakers, volunteers & the public have been participating in this fabulous Provincetown fundraising tradition presented by the Provincetown Community Compact. This year due to the appearance of white sharks the course of this important Provincetown tradition & fundraiser will move closer to the town’s shoreline. Walkers will be invited to participate as well. In addition to the Provincetown Harbor Shoreline Swim there will be a “Satelite Swim” in Great Pond in Wellfleet pending approval by the town. This fresh water swim is approximately a mile & will follow the shoreline of the pond. Jay Critchley, Director of the Provincetown Community Compact (The Compact), sponsor of the Swim for Life stated, “The Swim was created to honor the pristine harbor, which is the lifeblood of the town. The increased presence of seals & sharks in our waters is a harbinger of changes in the environment & swimmer safety is paramount. These changes continue our celebration of the harbor’s ecology. This is about the resilience of the Swim, the community & the planet.” Swimmers across the country will swim to benefit the following community organizations & projects: AIDS Support Group of Cape Cod (ASGCC), Helping Our Women (HOW), Outer Cape Health Services, Provincetown Rescue Squad Association, Lower Cape Ambulance Association, Soup Kitchen of Provincetown (SKIP), Provincetown Schools, The Compact Community Fund, Accessible Provincetown, West End Racing Club & Cape Cod Children’s Place.
