Dave McLaughlin, Executive Director of Clean Ocean Access, joined me for 45 minutes on Tuesday’s What’sUpNewp Radio Edition on AM 1540 WADK Newport to chat about this weekend’s Swim To Skim, Clean Ocean Access’s summer initiatives and more.

Swim to Skim is a 0.9 mile or 1.5-mile open-water swim through Newport Harbor from Perrotti Park to King Park to celebrate improving water quality, efforts to eliminate marine debris and action plans to protect and expand public access to the waterfront.
