Swim the Canal

August, 2018 

           

 

Far from Ordinary…. Be Extraordinary.

 

Our annual “Swim the Canal” event is an extraordinary community tradition of fun, festivities and celebration. Note that Swim the Canal is generally held the last day of Nicolas Denys Days  In 2017 we had 250 participants. Why not join us in 2018 for the whole week!

There were two swim options either swim the length or the width of the canal.

  1. Length – we swim 800 meters in the world-famous Bras d’Or Lake through the St. Peter’s Canal National Historic Site, ending at Battery Provincial Park beach on the shores of the Atlantic Ocean. ,
  2. Width – we swim 100 meters from Battery Park to the canal wall and back

ONLINE REGISTRATION CLOSED SATURDAY EVENING, 2017

Onsite registration and event usually start at 2:00 pm at Battery Provincial Park beach, St. Peter’s. Stay tuned for details.
