2008 Round the Sound Event Re-Cap:

Governor of Bermuda welcomes swimmers in the Round the Sound Swim.

October 19th 2008, Harrington Sound, Bermuda: His Excellency the Governor of Bermuda Sir Richard Gozney welcomed the largest contingent of swimmers ever to Bermuda for the 2008 Round the Sound Swim. 217 swimmers from over 25 US states, Canada, Europe, and Bermuda took part in distances ranging from 800 meters to a 10K. The 10K event took the swimmers entirely around scenic Harrington Sound.

The swim originated some 18 years ago by Bermuda open water swimmer Reeve Trott who brought the idea up to his coach Duncan Newby. The dream has become a charity fundraising event and since that time more than $300,000 has been raised by the swimmers and organizers for various local charities. In recognition of Duncan’s passing this year the event was held in his honor with his name and “Our Inspiration” added to the sleeve of the event t-shirts.

A special thanks to all the sponsors and participants who worked behind the scenes to make this event a success. The 2008 results, information, and sponsors from this years swim can be found here: www.aquamoonadventures.com Information about next year’s 2009 event will be posted there soon.

We hope you will participate in the “2009 Round the Sound Swim” and as they say in Bermuda “feel the love….”

Awesome! Hope to do this one next year! I spent the day working outside at close to 0C/32F in blowing snow for 8 hours (and it's only late October - gonna be another brutal winter) dreaming of what it must be like to live tropical... I can't even imagine that...a dream come true.

I'm still thawing out my hands and feet.
