Consolidated Water meet launches today

The Cayman Water Company (now
Consolidated Water) has been sponsoring the Stingray Swim Club since the 1990s.

Even though the times have changed
the company continues to support local swimming.

The Stingray Club is delighted that
the company is once again the sponsor of its first four-day meet of 2010, the Consolidated
Water age group championships and carifta trials.

All of the swimming action gets
started today at the Lions Pool in George
Town and wraps up this coming Sunday.

The racing will start with the
distance section and resume on Friday when the youngest swimmers (six and
under) will have all their races.

All other age-groups are spread
over Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

The Stingray Club reminds swimmers not
to be put off by the inclusion of the words “CARIFTA Trials” in the title.
Today’s meet is much more than that though traditionally the CARIFTA team is announced
on the final day and many swimmers use this meet to make qualifying times.

The Stingray Club feels the year got
off to a great start at the KPMG Burner and is hoping to have another big
turnout for this event. With the continued support of the public the club hopes
to make this a great year for swimming.
