The swim distance is 2.5miles (4km) and starts from Oualie Beach on Nevis at 8.00am and goes across the 'Narrows' to finish at Cockleshell Beach on St Kitts. The 2018 swim will be the 17th annual Bente Weber Memorial Swim and it continues to offer both a race and a challenge to open water swim enthusiasts and adventurers alike. They will take on the best open ocean swimmers in the region and the world.
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'.
This year we will continue to partner with the St Kitts & Nevis Special Olympics Group to raise awareness and funds for this important sporting project.
