Registration open for Saturday’s CUC sea swim

| 18/10/2011

(CIASA): On the 22nd October CIASA will host its sixth sea swim event of the year, with the 23rd Annual CUC 800 Metre Sea Swim. The swim runs north, parallel to 7 Mile Beach starting at Governor’s Beach and ending at Public Beach. Registration is from 3:00-3:45p with the race starting at 4:00pm. Both competitive and non–competitive swimmers will find the race an enjoyable excuse to enjoy a leisurely swim in the Caribbean’s finest waters. CUC is proud to continue supporting Cayman Swimming and this swim has become the second biggest open water swim on the Cayman calendar behind the Flowers Sea Swim held in June every year.

The island’s top resident swimmer – Geoffrey Butler – hopes to defend his title but will have to contend with fellow competitors Alex McCallum and younger brother Simon.
Danielle Booth, Coral Tomascik and Lois Moody will not be far off the boys and hope to defend their titles of top females.

Trophies will be awarded for the top three male and female finishers in all age categories. Regardless of finishing position, every swimmer will get a tee shirt, refreshments and pizza at the end of the race. Participants in the sea swim will be required to wear distinctive CUC swim–caps, which will be provided upon registration, during the race.

Entry fees are CIASA members: CI$10.00 for children and CI$ 15.00 for adults; non-members: CI$15.00 for children and CI$ 20.00 for adults.
