Open Water Swimming!
CIBBOWS is a 501(c)3 organization dedicated to being the very best New York City resource for open water swimmers. Our strong, ever-growing community hosts weekly, year-round training swims at Coney Island and Brighton Beach. We advocate improving the environment of New York Harbor, and promoting public access to its waters; mutually-strengthening partnerships with like-minded organizations; and affordable races, so that more people can enjoy swimming events at our beaches.
Since 2005, CIBBOWS, the only not-for-profit organizer of open water swim races in New York City, has presented a yearly series of fun and challenging ocean races including one-mile, long-distance and cold-water events. We've hosted regional and national championships for US Masters Swimming that attract swimmers from around the nation. Our fundraising helps keep race costs to a minimum, and contributes to our dream of a beachfront facility to serve as a home for open-water swimming on the East Coast.
