Celebrate the end of the summer season with the annual Arthur J. Ladrigan Swim Races and Family Fun Day at Bayley Beach on Sunday, September 2nd of Labor Day weekend.

We’ll start with the Lighthouse Race at 10:30am sharp (a one-mile swim from Green’s Ledge Lighthouse to shore). Check-in for Lighthouse Race swimmers and their kayak escorts will start one hour prior to start.

Following the Lighthouse Race is the Buoy Race (a swim from the buoy to the shore). Last are the children’s swim races, which are grouped by age and run parallel to the beach.

After the awards ceremony, all are invited to join in the beach games which include a tug-of-war, a pie-eating contest and egg toss.
