Cayman’s athletes completed one last holdover from 2018 on Saturday: the 30th annual CUC Sea Swim.
The 800-meter race, originally set for Oct. 6, and then for Dec. 1, had been rescheduled due to weather conditions. On Saturday, however, swimmers encountered pristine waters and clear skies at Seven Mile’s Governors Beach.
Overall winner Alex Dakers, competing in the male 15-19 category, described a difficult but satisfying race.
“It was good conditions, as always, and it was a really good race between me and some of the other boys out here,” he said.
