Two young swimmers, Kyle and Keegan, and their thoughts about learning to swim in our funded Okanagan Swims program through YMCA Okanagan.
Canada’s Largest Open Water Swim
Welcome to the Interior Savings Across the Lake Swim, the largest and longest running open water swim event in Canada! It is time to start planning to take part in the Interior Savings Across the Lake Swim on July 18th, 2015! 2015 will mark the 67th consecutive edition of an event that has always offered a challenge and a standard for young and old, newly minted swimmers and seasoned racers.
Since its beginning in 1949, the Interior Savings Across the Lake Swim in Kelowna, BC has always been more a demonstration of swimming ability than a race. Each summer, swimmers of all ages and abilities challenge themselves to swim 2.1 kilometres across Okanagan Lake, to test what they have learned and to master the distance.
Join us for the 67th swim on July 18th, 2015!
With the continued growth in participation in the Interior Savings Across The Lake Swim, the event organizers have been working all year to make this great event even more fun and safer than ever before. There are multiple support boats and lifeguards on the lake, wave starts, as well as a better-than-ever event bag!
