Swimmers started off at the Old Dock in Essex, N.Y. The finish was at Charlotte Town Beach, bottom.

The fourth annual Lake Champlain Open Water Swim was postponed from Saturday to Sunday last weekend due to windy conditions. On Sunday, 49 swimmers took to the water in Essex, N.Y. for the 3.76-mile race to Charlotte. Dozens of kayakers followed along. The race benefits the nonprofit Lake Champlain Committee. Organizer Christophe Lissarrague didn’t have a tally yet, but said he hoped the event raised $1,000 for the nonprofit environmental organization.

Here are the results:
