The LIME 800m Sea Swim, the first Cayman Islands Amateur Swimming Association open water event of the year, will be held on Saturday.
The 27th staging of the annual swim starts at 4 p.m., with registration from 3-3.45 p.m. at Public Beach and runs south, parallel to Seven Mile Beach, starting and ending at Governor’s Beach.
Swimmers who are not already members of CIASA can pay the membership fee when they sign up securing discounted registration fees for the whole family for the duration of the sea swim series.
“We are delighted that LIME is once again sponsoring the first swim in our open water swim series,” said CIASA president Michael Lockwood. “Open water swimming takes advantage of our beautiful Seven Mile Beach – one of Cayman’s most amazing natural assets – and I encourage everyone to come out this weekend and take part.”
The sea swim attracts a wide variety of participants – competitive and non–competitive swimmers of all ages – and is a great family activity which allows parents to set a great example of living a healthy life, by swimming with their children.
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.
