SwimRI Dominates 2nd Annual Newport Sharkfest Swim (Again)!

Congrats to Rock-Paper-Scissors, Triton Lightnin' and Triton Schmiton for completing a SwimRI clean sweep of the 2014 Newport Sharkfest Rochambeau Cup team competition. Kudos to SwimRI's Brian McKenna and Albert Garcia for their one-two punch in the overall individual division, the SwimRI ladies for doing what they do (kick ass) and to everyone involved. By all accounts, it was a fun morning in downtown Newport with a strong SwimRI turnout, lots of enthusiasm, camaraderie and good-natured, intra-team rivalry. Thanks to SwimRI's Laura Schmitt for once again arranging free food & beer at The Landing Restaurant & Bar. Most importantly, thank you all for supporting Clean Ocean Access, a grassroots nonprofit that does great work under the leadership of Dave McLaughlin, who is a good friend to our local swimming community.
