Ocean Games, Swim Ocean City events, Saturday

(July 18, 2014) Ocean Games is back with its second annual Swim Ocean City, taking swimmers through a one-, three- or nine-mile course along the resort’s shoreline tomorrow, July 19.

New this year, the East Coast SUP CUP will run in conjunction with the swim, giving paddle boarders a chance to participate in the annual event. Both will take place in cooperation with the Ocean City Beach Patrol and Coast Guard.

More than 160 people took to the water for the inaugural swim and Davis presented a $10,000 check to Johns Hopkins as a result.

“I was very happy with the turnout,” he said.
