Sad News. Another OW legend has passed away. Russell Chaffee of Sayre, PA was the first to swim across Cape Cod Bay. He literally set the course back in 1968. The present swim that is sanctioned by MOWSA that starts at Whitehorse Beach in Plymouth and finishes at Herring Cove in Provincetown was extensively researched by Chaffee before he made his crossing. He even created a computer program, during a sabbatical at Trinity College, to predict the currents in the bay! Below is a link to his Obit which lists many amazing accomplishments.
