Ship-to-shore swims are a blast. Some are competitive; others are for charity.

Everyone gathers in a boat, all crowded and excited to begin. Some venture in their own bioprene; others jump from the boat wrapped in neoprene.

As the swimmers step onboard barefooted and simply equipped with goggles and a swim cap, the buzz in the boat is usually worth the cost of admission. Laughing, joking, smiling, selfie-taking, GoPro’ing, the swimmers are excited to board the boat and begin their swim with jumps, flips or dives off the mother ship.

The new Escape From Lewes Open Water Classic starts at the Cape May-Lewes Ferry Terminal in Lewes, Delaware on the American East Coast.

The 5 km and 1-mile race, organized by DelMoSports, is scheduled for September 27th and expects up to 1,000 athletes competing in wetsuit, non-wetsuit, junior, masters, and triathlon club categories.
