2019 Open Water Swim Clinics!



Due to a police investigation on the beach in front of the New York Aquarium, we will be shifting the location of our clinic down the beach by about 1 mile to Grimaldo’s Chair on Brighton Beach.  The Parks Department has advised us that we will not be affected by the police activity at our new meeting spot.

When: Saturday, July 13th
Time: 8am-10am

Please arrive by 7:30am so we can start on time!!!  We recommend you leave EXTRA time for subway delays, traffic, parking, etc. as well as finding the new meet up spot if you are unfamiliar with it!  We unfortunately cannot issue any credits or refunds if you get lost, delayed or can’t park and miss the event!

NEW Location / Directions to Grimaldo’s Chair

Location:  The swim will take place at Brighton Beach in Brooklyn, NY.  Meet on the boardwalk at Grimaldo’s Chair.  It’s just under a mile east of the New York Aquarium where we have met for our clinics in the past.

Directions:  Take the B/Q train to Brighton Beach.  When you exit the subway, walk down to Brighton 4th Street and turn left towards the ocean. There is a shaded area on the boardwalk where we will convene right in front of the Brighton Beach Parking Lot.  You may lock your bike along the railing on the boardwalk, but please do so at your own risk!  Please leave your valuables at home!  If you drive, there appears to be a public parking lot for Brighton Beach right in front of our meeting spot.
