Celebrate the end of the summer season with the annual Arthur J. Ladrigan Swim Races and Family Fun Day at Bayley Beach in Rowayton. The Lighthouse Race (a one-mile swim from Green’s Ledge Lighthouse to shore) starts at 10:30am sharp.
Check-in for Lighthouse Race swimmers and their kayak escorts will start at 8:30am. 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 traditional beach games, which include a tug-of-war, a pie-eating contest and an egg toss.
Hands for Life Rowayton will be hosting a free CPR Training Event from 11am-3pm on the basketball courts next to the event! It takes only 15 minutes to learn Hands Only CPR and how to use an AED (Automated External Defibrillator). Our Friends from Post 53 will join our local volunteers to share this lifesaving information. Please take the time to save a life!
