I can't swim but if I could this would be cool

The Manhattan Island Foundation, est. 1993, organises swimming events in the waters around Manhattan. Since its inception, the Foundation has attracted nearly 10,000 participants in more than 70 swimming races, thus helping to revive a local aquatic tradition that had been abandoned for nearly a century.

The season's premier contest is the annual Manhattan Island Marathon Swim, which draws an international roster of swimmers. This summer the Foundation is also hosting ten other events of various distances inlcuding two multi-sport races; and three open-water swim clinics.

The 2007 Swim Series began with a bang this past weekend at the Lady Liberty Swim. Results can be found here. If you missed the Lady Liberty, there's still time to enroll as a swimmer or a volunteer for the Park to Park Swim on June 10th.

Stroke it.
