Ever wanted to swim in the heart of New York Harbor? Now is your chance! New York Open Water (NYOW) is proud to host the Governors Island Swim! This 2.0 mile swim is a great event for swimmers looking to increase their distance and gain confidence in the open water. We can certainly guarantee magnificent views of lower Manhattan. Swimmers will jump into the water at Castle Williams, swim counter clockwise around Governors Island, ending at Pier 101. Several years of refurbishment have made this a great spectator swim, so friends and loved ones have the opportunity to watch part of your swim from land. Hurry! Registration ends on June 29, and there is no race day registration. Please visit nyopenwater.org for more
