The swim is both a race and a bucket list event for not so competitive or able athletes allowing the use of ‘assistance’ such as fins, or wetsuits etc, however these athletes do not qualify for any prizes, those swimmers that do compete have the opportunity to race within ‘age groups’ so that everyone is competing on a level playing field.

Starting on Nevis at the Oualie Beach the swimmers swim across the fairly shallow ‘Narrows’ which has a maximum depth of 30 feet, so that the bottom is visible all the way across, the swimmers will be escorted by kayakers, motor boats and the Coast Guard to ensure their safety, finishing up at Cockleshell Beach on St Kitts with a post race breakfast and party hosted by the Reggae Beach bar.
