SEA ISLE CITY, N.J. – The Sea Isle City Beach Patrol will host its annual One-Mile Ocean Swim on Saturday, July 20th, at 11 a.m

The starting line will be at the water’s edge at around 61st Street and the finish line will be in front of Beach Patrol Headquarters on the 44th Street Beach.

If extreme currents run north to south on race day, the starting line will be switched to the 27th Street Beach in an effort to have participants swim with the current.
