Barbados Open Water Festival 2019. Day 2 races. Carlisle Bay. 3.3K, 5K, 10K.


Day 2 races at the 8th Barbados Open Water Festival. November 2019. Lively happy open water swimmers from all over the world swimming in Carlisle Bay! The 10K started at 7 am and the other two races (3.3 and 5) started out at 9 am. Was a treat having ultra-endurance athlete Cameron Bellamy and well-known marathon swimmer/ice swimmer Jaimie Monahan in the mix at this year’s event. On Day 2 winners were – 3.3K: Adara Stoddard (BAR) & Zack Hebert-Jarema (CAN), 5K: Ashley Hogg (UK) & Catherine Minic (CAN) and 10K: Drew Edwards (CAN) and three-time Olympian Steph Horner (CAN). It was amazing to welcome back many regulars including groups like the Jersey Girls and the Freestyle Experience as well as the many local swimmers who take part every year. The 9th Festival is scheduled for November 4-8, 2020. (Entry opens Feb 2020). Thanks to the Barbados Tourism Marketing Inc and the Tourism Development Corporation for their support.
