During 2018, The St Lucia Swimming Federation hosted the
INAUGURAL St Lucia Channel Swim event which was supported through
Ministry of Tourism, Department of Youth and Sports as well
as many local organizations.
Preparations have started for the 2nd annual St Lucia Channel
Swim event which will take place from July 4-July 9th. The
event involves open water swim clinics with
Mr. Philip Rush
, crossings by solo and relay swimmers, and
media events pre and post the swim.
The channel crossing is 33 ks of beautiful Caribbean sea with
gorgeous landscapes ahead and behind of the high volcanic islands
of St Lucia and Martinique. This swim has only been completed
a few times so this event will be sure to attract attention.
Registration is open and you can see more on our FB page
The event includes "The Races" - 1k, 3k, 5k open water swimming
event set in the beautiful Rodney Bay off Reduit Beach. These will
take place on Saturday July 6th with Open Water clinics the days
before. We will be sending out the summons/invitation for
this event in the next few months.
Additionally, we have special accommodation rates for participants
at several local hotels.
