  • Lake Memphremagog Prouty Beach, Newport, VT (map)

A celebration of open water swimming - 25 km Border Buster, 10 Mile, 6.2 Mile (10 km), 3.1 Mile (5 km), 1 Mile. All swimmers except for the 1 milers are required to be accompanied by a kayaker.  We STRONGLY encourage swimmers to bring their own escort “yacker.”  We are willing to provide volunteer yackers for those in need, while available, for the following fee:  $350 for Border Busters, $200 for the 10 Milers, and $150 for the 3 and 6 milers.  This is done on a first come, first served basis.  If you need a kayaker, we encourage you to register early.

For those with their own kayaker but who need a kayak, we offer rental kayaks delivered to the beach on the morning of the swim with paddle, 2 pfds, and a whistle for $65.

All swimmers must be qualified.  They should have completed at least 2/3rds the distance for which they register on or before July  1, 2019.  Qualifying swims do not have to be formal events.  They can be informal, with a kayaker and a gps.  But they must be open water.
