Swimming to Madeline Island has been a storied feat around the Bayfield area for decades. Starting as a community swim for 24 people in 2006, the Point to La Pointe has grown into a thriving race that sells out annually at 500 swimmers.
The 2021 Point to LaPointe Swim, hosted by the Recreation and Fitness Resources as a fundraiser for the Bayfield Rec Center, is changing due to COVID-19. The Point to LaPointe - 2021 Cliff Swim will deliver a challenging Lake Superior course for swimmers and breathtaking views for spectators atop Bayfield's famous 75' cliffs. The past year has been challenging and unpredictable. We need something to look forward to, and this event will not disappoint. Saturday, August 7, 2021, offers a chance of a lifetime for swimmers and spectators alike!
Swimmers have encountered all of Lake Superior's moods over the years, from calm, flat water to strong crosswinds with 2 foot waves. This event is registered with and approved by the US Coast Guard.
