Event Information

Event Info:
Save The Bay and its members bring real change to Narragansett Bay and its watershed.
Founded in 1977, the Bay Swim is Save The Bay’s largest annual fundraiser, serving as a critical support to our efforts to protect and restore the Narragansett Bay region. In 2012, the Swim raised a record-setting $355,000 through sponsorship and swimmer-driven fundraising. Swimmer gifts ranged from $400 to $5,225 and were the direct result of swimmers collectively engaging more than 4,000 donors in support of their swim!
In Save The Bay’s formative years, the Swim helped keep the organization afloat. The Save The Bay of today is a legacy of those first brave souls who crossed the East Passage.
In many ways, the Save The Bay of today is the legacy of those first brave souls who crossed the East Passage 36 years ago. Back then, proceeds from the Swim kept the organization afloat. Today, Save The Bay is the largest and most influential environmental group in Rhode Island. Without our efforts, Narragansett Bay would be defined by: a nuclear power plant at Rome Point; a failing municipal sewage treatment plant and a 60-ton-per-day sewage sludge incinerator at Fields Point; a large-load container port at Quonset; eelgrass extinction; no marine science in Providence’s public elementary schools; lost salt marshes and historic herring runs; and the list goes on. But thankfully none of this came to pass.
By supporting the Bay Swim, you join thousands of people who care about the Bay in extraordinary ways - and who will leave a legacy of care just as those first swimmers did all those years ago. We hope you’ll consider joining us.

Versa Board ($7,500.00 + ) 
The Versa board is the first stand-up-paddle board of its kind: a paddle board with complete hybrid paddling capabilities. It functions superbly as a SUP (stand-up-paddleboard) and fluidly as a SOT (sit-on-top). Sport options range from a hardcore angler’s favorite fishing vessel to a play machine and diving platform for the whole human and canine family to a tread mill for core training.
