Due to an overwhelming response, we have gone ahead and closed our applications for Breezy Point 2023. Applications are being reviewed and you should hear from us soon.

All payments for confirmed swimmers are due by August 7.

How many times have you sat on Brighton Beach and looked out at those beautiful beaches across the water that are called Breezy Point? “Could I swim that distance?” “Is there dangerous boat traffic?” “I can’t live another day if I can’t do that swim.”

This 5K swim is only available to CIBBOWS members. As a true channel crossing, we will only accept experienced swimmers. Registrations will be manually reviewed and approved.

You’ll swim out to one of our boats and then be transported to Breezy Point to start the swim. I’ve always liked to get completely out onto the beach and touch that lighthouse building on the beach at Breezy before starting. You will have to swim together as a group (for safety reasons – we’re crossing a busy boating channel) guided by our support boats and kayakers until you reach Manhattan Beach. Once you’ve made the buoy at Manhattan Beach you’ll turn left swimming along the coast – here you are welcome to start your race to the finish, leave all your swimming buddies in your bubbles.

The swim starts from Breezy Point and ends where the boats picked you up – at Education Hall. Practice your beach starts and your sighting before the race, but after the race invite your friends to join you in taking advantage of amusements, games, and dining that Coney Island and Brighton Beach can offer you.
