EDF Aqua Challenge Cannes
In the heart of the French Riviera, with St Tropez and Marsailles to the west, and Nice and Monte Carlo to the east, lies the city best known for its International Film Festival. And now the city of Cannes is also the host to an incredible open water race too!
The race takes place just in front of the Lerins Islands, which gives lucky swimmers a chance to take in the spectacular swim course! The race itself offers distances of: 5k, 2.5k (with and without fins), as well as a 500m childrens swim and a 3.5k relay. So there is something for everyone!
The Bocca Cana Cup is organised by Le Cercle des Nageurs de Cannes and the French Swimming Federation.
Even if you aren't a swimmer, you won't want to miss this trip to this amazing city, you can join the swimmers on the beach for the festive and friendly atmosphere, before taking in all the sights and tastes that Cannes has to offer!
