Shark Sightings Force Changes To Popular Provincetown Swim


During the past 31 years, the Provincetown Swim for Life has become a major summer event.

“It’s ingrained in the community,” says organizer Jay Critchley.

But there’s a new player in the area, great white sharks, whose numbers are increasing steadily in the summer. And now, their presence has forced a change in the event, even though no white sharks have been spotted in Provincetown Harbor.

“It’s been writing on the wall,” Critchley said. “It’s a serious concern. It’s not a major risk but the result would be a major catastrophe.”
