Around the Island Swim halted with no finishers after 10-plus hours

August 2, 2021

Competitors in the 55th Around the Island Swim ran into difficult ocean conditions Sunday, and the race couldn’t come to a typical conclusion. The rules of the 22.75-mile race around Absecon Island called for a 10-hour time limit, and no swimmers in the clockwise race were at the North Jackson Avenue cutoff point at that time.
