The Global Swim Series is proud to announce the first tropical destination on the 2015 schedule!
The renowned Barbados Open Water Swim Festival will add it’s unique tropical and festive flavor to the series this year.
Situated in gorgeous Barbados and held on one of the nicest white sand beaches in the world, this spectacular festival showcases everything the Caribbean has to offer. Just the calm, beautiful and warm waters make this an extremely fun swim in it’s own right but the event itself takes things to another level entirely. The first few days feature guided swims where swimmers will see fish of all kinds and it is quite common to spot sea turtles as well. The day before the race features an open water clinic by Open Water Olympian Alex Meyer. Festivities during the festival also include stand-up paddle board races and kayak races. The main GSS races feature a 1.5km and 5km distance, with the 5km comprising of 5 beautiful loops around the bay. With loads of prizes and a truly unique and festive atmosphere this should be at the top of anyone’s list for a destination race!
