Brendan Vibert swimming the Northumberland Strait
The Advertiser reports that a "Wolfville swimmer [is] excited to take challenge of Northumberland Strait with The Big Swim". Final year Geology major, Brendan Vibert, will tackle the swim from Cape Jourimain, N.B. to Borden-Carleton, P.E.I., on Sunday morning, 6 August. Brendan is co-captain of Acadia’s varsity team, but still considers the 15 km swim to be a challenge. He was inspired to participate to support a friend, and by Jackson Malone who has participated by kayak twice before. Funds raised through the event go to support Camp Brigadoon on Aylesford Lake. The E&ES department is contributing to Brendan's fund-raising effort.
