Conditions were perfect for the 32nd Annual CUC Open Water sea swim which took place on Saturday 30 January.
Over 90 swimmers took to the water, including CUC’s CEO Mr. Richard Hew (who finished second in his age group); and two swimmers who used the 400m distance as an opportunity to try out open water.
“We are grateful to CUC for their continued sponsorship of Cayman Swimming,” said Cayman Islands Aquatic Sports Association (CIASA) President, Michael Lockwood. “We had great weather and a great turn out for the swim,” he continued “and our ability to gather and enjoy our beautiful Seven Mile Beach is a blessing not lost on us.”
First swimmer to finish was Stingray Swim Club’s Jake Bailey (10:01), Seven Mile Swimmers’ Will Sellars and James Allison were second and third respectively (10:05, and 10:15). First woman to finish was Stingray’s Raya Embury-Brown (10:24), second was Lauren Hew (10:27) and third was Stingray’s Kyra Rabess (10:31).
