June 15th will see teams of four divers come together to race for a cause, as all proceeds from the Cayman Scuba Mile will go to the Special Olympics Cayman Islands (SOCI). A regular supporter of SOCI, Red Sail Sports is hoping to make a significant contribution through the efforts of the relay race, which will help support the non-profit sports training program with its mission to provide year-round sports training and athletic competition in a variety of Olympic-type sports for children and adults.

“We encourage all qualified divers in the Cayman Islands, as well as other countries, to participate in Cayman’s first Scuba Mile Relay Race – our very own divers are putting together their own teams as well. It will be an enjoyable and entertaining day out for everybody involved, especially for those who are competing, as their participation will also be contributing to a great cause,” commented Rod McDowall, Operations Manager at Red Sail Sports.

The inaugural Cayman Scuba Mile has already attracted the attention of numerous divers across the Cayman Islands, as well as throughout the US and even as far as Canada. ‘The relay race with a difference’ will require teams of four divers, together with two safety snorkelers, to race ¼ mile each on scuba; the first team to cross the finish line will win bragging rights for a year and will receive a trophy to proudly display among their peers. However, nobody will leave the Scuba Mile empty-handed, as all team members will receive a goodie bag and will be entered to win exciting prizes.

The Flowers Sea Swim and Cayman Scuba Mile will be held in tandem on Saturday, 15th June 2013 at 2:30pm. For further information on the race and registration, interested divers are urged to visit Red Sail Sports official website: Registration closes on 31st May 2013.
