11/17/2020: Please be advised that while the Great Chesapeake Bay Swim's website's homepage has
June 13, 2021 as swim day, the event is still on hold.
An announcement should be made by the end of January 2021. This decision will be made by the executive planning staff. Due to the scope of the event, which includes hundreds of support volunteers and respective organizations, all considerations must be taken especially with Covid-19 as the number one challenge. Covid-19 greatly impacts the logistics of the swim, along with the required human effort from swimmers, safety fleets (in-water and land), security and check-in requirements through to the finish process.
This is an event which takes months of planning and preparations. When ready, the announcement will be posted on this site plus the GCBS's homepage. All entrants from June 14, 2020 will be notified regarding final decisions on the status of GCBS for June 13, 2021. GCBS is a major event which traditionally involves thousands of participants on all event levels. . . from the awesome swimmers, to support personnel, spectators, and sponsors. It is regarded as a top national long-distance swim. It is our hope to present the swim in the same manner all expect and are assured to receive.
