Swim Across the Bay is a 2-mile, point-to-point swim founded in 2017 that starts at the Henderson Point Boat Launch in Pass Christian, MS. The swim route will be a straight line across the bay to the pier of the Bay St. Louis Municipal Harbor. All participants and volunteers will receive a Swim Across the Bay shirt.
Awards will be given to the top 3 male and female finishers. We will have a 2 hour cutoff for the race. Any swimmers that do not complete the race in 2 hours will be picked up by water support crews.  Any participant that is 17 and younger has to have a dedicated volunteer paddle next to them. All swimmers are welcome and encouraged to provide a kayak escort.
Participants can park at the finish line. A shuttle bus will be provided to the start of the race or can be dropped off at the start by a friend or relative.
Gear
You can use any safety equipment you want including a snorkel or personal buoy. You are forbidden to use any propulsion device including fins or hand paddles. You may wear a wetsuit however the water temperature is typically 80 degrees or higher which is considered unsafe for wetsuits. You must wear a swim cap, but it can be any cap you prefer. We will issue you a latex swim cap if you need one. Goggles are HIGHLY recommended.
 Event Details
Breakfast items and drinks will be available after the race for all swimmers and volunteers. Volunteers are needed to kayak/paddleboard alongside the swimmers.
