BOTB Team Site

With 10 years of races, here is the history. . . . How many have you participated in?

Shout out to two swimmers that have completed all 10 BOTB swims, and we are permanently retiring the cap numbers in our BOTB: #1 – Pierre Tessier, #2 – Stephane Laurin.  Pierre & Stephane were among the dozen or so swimmers that took place in the first swim in 2007 – we’ve grown a lot since then!
