Nevis to St. Kitts Cross Channel Swim

The 2014 swim will be the 12th annual Bente Weber memorial swim which  offers the opportunity to both speedsters and adventurers to take on the best open ocean swimmers in the region and the world.

The swim distance is 2.5miles (4km) and goes from Oualie Beach on Nevis to Cockleshell Bay on St Kitts, in 2013 there were a record number of finishers (127) and in 2011 a new event record was set by Olivier Marceau in a time of 58:09

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'.

Yes, you can!
