Sharkfest Swim

Registration is now open for the fourth annual Newport Sharkfest Swim, a benefit for Clean Ocean Access. The event, scheduled for Sept. 18, is presented by Enviro Sports and will take place along the historic waterfront of Newport. In the past three years more than 300 swimmers have enjoyed the swim from Perrotti Park to Kings Park Swim Area. New for this year is the 1.5-mile swim with a Rochambeau loop in the southern part of the harbor.

The purpose of the swim is to bring further awareness to the effort and positive results for improving the health of Newport Harbor: improving water quality, reducing marine debris, protecting shoreline access, and energizing discussion of a continuous waterfront harbor walk. To register, sharkfestswim.com. To volunteer, visit cleanoceanaccess.org.
