Wharf to Wharf Swim to be held Sept. 20

The 14th annual L. Wayne Hudgins Wharf to Wharf Swim will take place on Sunday, Sept. 20, from 1-4 p.m., at Williams Wharf Landing on the East River.

The annual swim raises funds to support the Mathews Land Conservancy, which maintains both Williams Wharf and an open space/picnic area on the Mobjack Bay at Bayside at Bavon. It is named for the late L. Wayne Hudgins, a local conservancy supporter for many years.

The swim goes from Williams Wharf to a point across the river which once was the site of Hicks Wharf, and back to Williams, a distance of about one mile. Both wharves were steamboat landings many decades ago. Williams Wharf has been a commercial site and river access point for centuries, and continues now with public fishing and as home of the Mathews High School crew program and Mobjack Rowing Association.

To take part, swimmers must collect at least $100 in pledges.
