This beach, formerly Beach 10, is named in honor of Patrick "Pat" Budny, who at age 17, became the first person to swim the 23 miles between Long Point, Ontario, Canaca, and Presque Isle State Park. Budny accomplished this feat in 26 hours on August 20, 1975 arriving on this beach at 2:00 a.m. Timothy "Tim" Hughes, Budny's companion for the swim, had to be pulled from the water, due to exhaustion, when only two miles from this shoreline, because of strong lake currents, Budny actually swam 31 miles to accomplish this outstanding feat.
