Southampton Village Ocean Rescue to Host S-Mile Swim Challenge

Southampton Village Ocean Rescue will host its first ever S-Mile Swim Challenge at Coopers Beach this summer. SVOR aims to bring the community together by having both participants and spectators support their local emergency responders while swimmers challenge their strength, endurance, and resilience. 

Founded in 2018, SVOR’s mission is to respond to water rescues in the ocean and bays, year-round, at all unprotected beaches in Southampton Village. Modeled after East Hampton Volunteer Ocean Rescue, SVOR is dedicated to making safe and expeditious water rescues via proven and effective water rescue techniques. 

The event will be held on August 20 at 7 AM. Participants will have a choice of swimming 1 mile, .5 mile, or .25 mile, while SVOR lifeguards will be safeguarding the community building event. The S-mile challenge also serves as a fundraiser to support their extensive training, operational expenses and essential services.
