The annual CUC 800 meters open water swim will be held on Saturday, Oct. 8.

Staged by the Cayman Islands Amateur Swimming Association and sponsored by CUC, the event also includes a 400m swim for youngsters ages 12 and under.

The 400m swim is not a timed event and will take place while the results are being tallied for the timed senior event.

The 800m event starts at 4 p.m. and the 400m at 4:45 p.m. Both are loop courses and begin and end at Governors Beach.

Registration will take place at 3-3:45 p.m.

Fees for the 800m are $15 for adult CIASA members, $10 for child CIASA members, $20 for adult non-members and $15 for child non-members. Fees for the 400m swim are $10 for all entrants.

There will be trophies for the top three finishers in each age group, and children in the 400m race will each receive participation ribbons. There will also be T-shirts and refreshments available.

This will be the last 800m swim this calendar year.
