Sea swimmers get another chance to compete in an established event this weekend.
The annual Flow 800m Sea Swim is on Saturday, May 13. The swim starts at 4 p.m., with registration from 3-3:45 p.m. It is a loop course, starting and ending at Governor’s Beach, on Seven Mile Beach.
The Cayman Islands Amateur Swimming Association’s sea swims attract a wide variety of participants – competitive and non–competitive swimmers of all ages – and are a family activity which allow parents to set a great example of living a healthy life, by swimming with their children. Registration is at Governor’s Beach and registration entry fees are CIASA members: $10 children and $15 adults; non-members: $15 children and $20 adults.
Michael Lockwood, CIASA president said: “There has been a break since the last sea swim in March. There are two 800m sea swims in May, with the Flow 800m swim and one more before the Flowers One Mile, 5K and 10K Swims in June.
“These races are a great warm up for novice and competitive swimmers alike. We thank Flow for providing this opportunity and look forward to seeing everyone back in the water.”
All swimmers are provided with swim caps, which must be worn for safety reasons and there are event T-Shirts, trophies for the top three male and female finishers in each age group and refreshments provided at the end of the race.
