Fernald to discuss open water endurance swimming

PORTSMOUTH — Blue Ocean Society will host a presentation from open water endurance swimmer Bob Fernald of North Hampton on Thursday, April 6.

Fernald completed his three-year journey to achieve the Triple Crown of Open Water Swimming in 2016, crossing the English Channel, a circumnavigational swim around Manhattan Island and crossing the Catalina Channel. He will share his love of open water swimming, discuss his local swims, impacts he sees on the ocean and how he gives back to the local community. In addition to a “clean the ocean” swim planned for Blue Ocean Society, he has helped raise thousands of dollars for Seacoast swim facilities.
