Swimmers cross the finish line at last year’s event

(CNS): The annual Flow 800m Sea Swim takes place Saturday, 14 May with a 4pm start time. Registration will be open from 3-3:45pm for the loop course, which starts and ends at Governor’s Beach. The Cayman Islands Amateur Swimming Association’s (CIASA) sea swims attract competitive and non-competitive swimmers of all ages.

The family-friendly events offer an opportunity for parents to set an example of living a healthy life by swimming with their children.

Entry fees for the Flow sea swim are: $10 for children and $15 for adults (CIASA members), and $15 for children and $20 for adults (non-members).

CIASA president Michael Lockwood said of his association’s events: “There has been a break since the last sea swim in early March. There are two 800m sea swims, 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 on May 14.”

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 Subway sandwiches and refreshments provided at the end of the race.
