Sea swim season kicks off with the Foster’s Food Fair 800 meters on Saturday 10 September. Sea swims are becoming more and more competitive, with races now incorporated in many international competitions including the Olympics and CARIFTA.

We spoke to the Cayman Islands Amateur Swim Association President Michael Lockwood on Wednesday ( 7 September) night’s episode of Lets Talk Sports, we says most local swimmers are using swims like the Foster’s Food Fair Sea Swim as a warm up for their international events.

“The first qualifier that we use for international competitions for our swimmers is the Pirates Week 5k, so this will be a good way to warm up. The Fosters one this weekend, the CUC swim is about a month later and then that leads into the 5k and then in 2017 we will have another series of swims and then another 5k which will be our second qualifying event.”

The CIASA has now added a 400 meter swim for kids 12 and under, or adults who just want a taste of the open ocean. The 400 meter is not a timed event and will take place while the results are being tallied for the 800 meter.

Registration begins at 3:00 p.m and the race starts promptly at 4:00 p.m.
