In 1926, the first organized competitive swim between Vashon Island and Point Defiance
in Tacoma, WA was held across approximately two miles of open water, following the
ferry route used today. Now we are making it possible to repeat this historic feat!
Blue Wave Aquatics is proud to announce the 3rd annual Swim Defiance taking place
at Commencement Bay, in Tacoma, Washington.
We welcome back returning swimmers as well as everyone else planning to participate
in June for the first time.
Swim Defiance offers a 3K and 5K event; participants for both events will receive
- Custom designed technical shirt in men and women sizes and styles
- Safety monitored and kayak guided ocean swim with a HUGE bright finish arch
- Brightly colored custom race cap, required for swim
- FREE post-race celebration with yummy refreshments and fun music
Congratulations to all of our 2016 Swimmers!
