Cable and Wireless and Cayman Airways continue their longtime support, which has helped fundamentally in the long-term development of Cayman swimmers.

The prestigious international law firm Maples and Calder came aboard as a major sponsor this year and is proud to be able to contribute. Speedo, the single overseas sponsor, equips the team with state-of-the- art racing suits, Fastskins, and a considerable amount of other gear.

The team has been training for months, as has the competition they will face. The CARIFTA swim meet serves as the Caribbean’s age group championship, and is a key to the development of its swimmers.
