FLOWERS SEA SWIM NEWS
Two Cayman institutions came together on Friday, when the proprietors of the Flowers Sea Swim presented a cheque for $74,000 to Special Olympics Cayman Islands.
Of the 900-plus swimmers that competed in the Flowers Sea Swim on Saturday, few can claim to have come as far or surmounted as many challenges as Jessica Long.
Around 900 swimmers of all shapes, sizes and ambitions, took to the waters off Seven Mile Beach Saturday for the latest instalment of one of Cayman’s favourite sporting events.
Former world champion Alex Meyer pipped Cayman’s own swimming star Shaune Fraser to take victory at the annual Flowers Sea Swim on Saturday.
Can it really be that time again? Yes, indeed – the Flowers Sea Swim is celebrating 27 years this Saturday along Seven Mile Beach, when swimmers of all ages and nationalities take to the open water in a flurry of arms and legs.
This year’s participation jersey is, for the first time, being made of material developed from re-purposed plastic.
