Seven in Eleven

Seven in Eleven
A Littoral Adventure
On Monday July 11, 2011 a group of adventurers will attempt to swim at seven salt water beaches in seven different states between dawn and dusk. With the support of several chapters of The Surfrider Foundation, Seven in Eleven celebrates the beauty of the coastal Northeast and proves that age is no barrier to having fun outdoors.

The event begins at sunrise (5:36 a.m.) at Long Branch, NJ. Subsequent stops will be at Rockaway Beach (Beach 90th Street) in New York City,
Sherwood Island State Park (East Beach) in Westport, CT,
Misquamicut State Beach, Westerly, RI,
Salisbury State Reservation, Salisbury, MA,
Wallis Sands State Beach, Rye, NH,
Ending before sunset (8:23 p.m.) at Long Sands Beach, York ME.

The Seven in Eleven builds on last year’s Quick Six – six beaches, six states, one day. The Quick Six was featured in the Travel Section of the Boston Sunday Globe.

This year’s participants, most in their 50’s and 60’s, are expected to include a registered nurse, a computer security expert, a former Coast Guardsman, a van driver, a veteran long-distance swimmer and runner, and a retired city planner.
