This annual event is hosted by Swim Barbados Vacations and mainly highlights 1.5km, 5km and 10km open water swim races. The festival is usually held in the Carlisle Bay area of the south-west coast, which features crystal clear waters with no undertow, creating the perfect conditions and swimming spot for this event.
The Barbados Open Water Festival uses electronic chip timing to provide accurate, quality timing for participants, and competitors gaining gold have a chance at winning a number of prizes.
Racers and fans can join the sponsors pre and post events, featuring beach parties, and ‘just–for-fun' races at certain Beach Bars and Restaurants in the Bay Street area.
