NON CPA EVENT : Chester River Swim for LIFE – 26th Anniversary

July 15, 2017 @ 8:00 am

This is a great & fun kayaker’s  swim support –  held each year by the DCAC   Master Swimmers     and to  support Charity organizations in the County :


Their 150-170 swimmers pledge to swim different distances along the east side of the Chester River shoreline   going up river toward the Town and back – a one way distance of 2.5 miles or 5 miles round trip.   There are  half mile markers along the route -to help guide them-  ALL  are excellent swimmers – with only a few slower folks doing the distances. 

We -volunteers –  are there to watch over the swimmers if they need a drink of  water or energy goo, keep errant boaters away & occasionally guide them to the next marker along the curving shoreline.    This is an easy support – all levels of kayakers are welcome & rec boats & sit on tops & STAND up Paddle boards  also  work well on the river.   BRING your marine radio!

They are a well organized enthusiastic  group, with  prizes and awards for the contributions gathered – and we  as volunteer  kayakers  all get  a great country cooked  buffet and a  T-SHIRT.
