We have opened registration for the 2017 NEKOWSA swim season in the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont. http://kingdomgames.co/nekowsa-swimming-the-kingdom/

The full schedule includes

3/3-5/17 - Memphremagog Winter Swim Festival - Warm Blood and Cold Water.
7/29/17 - Kingdom Swim, including the 25 km Border Buster, 10 Mile and 10K marathon options
8/12-20/17 - Swim Week - 8 lakes in 9 days totaling 45 miles
9/9/17 - In Search of Memphre - a 25 mile international swim promoting a more open border

We are also now offering support for marathon solo and relay swims throughout the summer on Lake Memphremagog. During the past two years, we've supported solo and relay swims the length of the lake and have now developed other 15, 16, and 18 mile swims each with their own unique character.

    Very excited about the Kingdom Swim, July 2017. Phil does a great job and word on the street there will be a pig roast with local craft beers.

    Can't wait for Border Busters 2017!! As the Last Horse Back in the Barn in 2016, I thought the pig roast/beer tent was perfectly timed!

    aiming for the Winter Fest swims - what type of certification is needed for the winter swims? Hugh and I completed ice swims in Lake Ontario Nov 12-13 with the Oakville crew supporting Great Lakes Trust - water temp 5C/ 41F ... our word enough or you need a signature?

    Word! You have to complete the 100m swim before you can swim the 200m.
