Ocean relay to raise cash for CARIFTA swimmers

| 07/04/2014

(CNS): The first Open Water Relay to take place in the Cayman Islands will make its debut on Seven Mile Beach this weekend to raise cash for the local junior swimming team heading to this year’s CARIFTA games, in Aruba later this month. The 34 member strong team (28 swimmers, 3 coaches, 2 managers and a physio) have just two weeks left to complete their fundraising efforts so there is a lot riding on the inaugural event which will include an 12-Under Swimmers 4x500m relay and a 13-Over swimmers a 4x800m relay.

Registration takes place from 2:00-2:45pm at Governor’s Beach 11 April and the race begins at 3:00pm. The cut off time for completion will be 1-1/2 hours.

Every relay team must consist of 4 swimmers. The cost to register a team is $40 per team, or $15 to register as an individual to be placed on a team. Swimmers do not need to be CIASA members to take part. The course will be triangular with each leg of the relay starting and finishing on land. Billed as a fun for all event all swimmers are urged to come out and take part. Proceeds will go to the 2014 Cayman Islands National Junior Swim Team for their trip to CARIFTA in Aruba.
