This summer the Halifax Harbour will host its first open-water swimming competition in more than 50 years, according to Swim Nova Scotia.

Swim Nova Scotia, the umbrella organization for all swim clubs in the province​, will host the event July 27.

Swimmers will start at the Cable Wharf, go around George’s Island, and return. […]

Halifax Harbour was off-limits to swimmers for decades, until a new sewage-treatment plant cleaned the water.
