Celebrating its 10th year the swim is across the channel between Nevis and St.Kitts in the beautiful setting of the Caribbean. The race start is at Oualie Beach on Nevis and the finish is at Cockleshell Bay on St.Kitts. The distance is 2.5miles (4km). In 2011 we had a record number of finishers (112) and a new event record was set by Olivier Marceau in a time of 58:10. The 2012 swim will be the 10th annual Bente Weber memorial Swim which offers the opportunity to both speedsters and adventurers to take on the best open ocean swimmers in the region, or just to see if they can make the crossing
One of the attractions of this event is that it is not only a race but also a challenge, so for those not so fast or competent swimmers please feel free to use fins or a snorkel mask to get you across the beautiful 'Narrows'.
Yes, you can!
