                 CAMERON BELLAMY to return in 2019

Cameron Bellamy of South Africa has become the first person in history to complete the highly complex swim around the island of Barbados. His unprecedented swim began on Sunday November 11 at about 11:20 am.  Hundreds of swimmers from around the world were already at the Carlisle Bay start as they were taking part in the annual Barbados Open Water Festival.  There was an atmosphere of great excitement on the beach as they gathered with many other interested onlookers to cheer him on.  Unbelievably, he swam for almost 41 hours and completed the 96K swim at 4:06 am on Tuesday November 13.  According to the Marathon Swimming Federation there are only three documented non-stop, unassisted sea swims in history that have been longer than Cameron Bellamy's  incredible swim around Barbados!

This highly talented, totally dedicated, endurance athlete uses his incredible abilities to raise funds for a children's charity - The Ubunye Challenge . Cameron Bellamy's next endurance adventures?  Swimming from Cuba to Florida and rowing the Drake Passage between Chile and Antarctica!
