Inaugural Sharkfest Swim



Experienced swimmers took to the water last week for the inaugural Newport Sharkfest Swim. The 1500 meter straight shot race ran from Perotti Park to King Park, with swimmers emerging from the water in the shadow of Rochambeau’s statue. Proceeds from the events benefited Clean Ocean Access. (Photo by Jonathan Clancy) Experienced swimmers took to the water last week for the inaugural Newport Sharkfest Swim.
