Grand Cayman, 3 March 2015: The Massive Open Water Relay, a fundraiser for the Cayman Islands National Swim Teams, takes place on Saturday 14th March and is followed by a CARIFTA 2015 fundraising BBQ. The relay is open to all – and if the inaugural 2014 open water relay event is anything to go by it will be a fun-filled afternoon.

The relay will be 4 x 400m for 12 & Under Teams, and 4 x 800m for all other swimmers. Registration, as well as the race start and finish will be at Governor’s Beach, with registration taking place from 2:30 – 3:15pm and the race starts at 3:45pm. Entries are individual but teams must be organized before and registration will be available on line, at

All swimmers are encouraged to put a team together and take part in this fun-filled afternoon. For avid swimmers it is one more way to get open water experience; for company wellness committees it will be a great team event or inter-departmental challenge (and there will be a corporate category) and for those who just love to swim – come on out and have a fun time and support a great cause.

If you want to take part and need a team please contact Sandy Hew – [email protected] – and she will be sure to find you three more willing swimmers. There will be prizes and surprises for all: Massive gift bags for all participants; T-shirts for everyone and awards for the first three teams in, in all age groups. There will also be a prize for Best Team Spirit or Best Dressed Team (at the discretion of the judges).

Entry fees are per swimmer:

–           CIASA Members: CI$15.00 for children under 18 and CI$20.00 for adults; and

–           Non-Members: CI$20.00 for children under 18 and CI$25.00 for adults.

–           The CARIFTA fundraising BBQ following the race is CI$15.00 for children under 18 and CI$25.00 for adults.


As is required at all CIASA Sea Swims, caps will be provided for all swimmers and shall be worn for the entirety of the races; T-shirts and water will be provided for all participants; and CIASA supporters t-shirts will also be on sale for $20 each.
