Fun in the water at the Beaufort River Swim

    Saturday morning saw nearly 150 swimmers jump into the Beaufort River at the Port Royal Landing Marina and swim in an open water race to the Downtown Beaufort Marina in the 8th Annual Beaufort River Swim, sponsored by the Wardle Family YMCA.

    Congrats to the Top 10 finishers in the swim:
    1. James Hammond
    2. Noah Corbitt

    4. Tristan Cummings
    5. Lilla Felix
    6. Mike Malik
    7. Yorlliry Moreno
