The Cayman Islands, located in the beautiful Caribbean Sea with crystal clear waters, white sands and warm weather all year, is the perfect location for outdoor water sports. Over two decades ago, against such an ideal backdrop, the tradition of the Flowers One Mile Sea Swim began. As the event swims into its 21st year on June 15, 2013, we invite you to participate in what has come to be considered a must-do event for open water aficionados and has been named one of the World’s Top 13 Open Water Swims.
The Flowers Sea Swim is Grand Cayman’s flagship sporting event. Last event’s race boasted over 900 registrants. Participants vary in age from 8 to 80 years old and in skill from novices and first-timers to gold medal Olympians and world championship open water specialists from around the globe. The Flowers Sea Swim welcomes Swimmers from all strokes of life!
The unique draw of the Flowers Sea Swim is not only its flawless course conditions along Cayman’s beautiful Seven Mile Beach, but the numerous random prizes. The race is the world’s richest open water event with over $100,000 in cash and random prizes. The odds to win a random prize are 1-in-5 and previous giveaways have included blackberries, Ipad’s, hotel stays, and dozens of airline tickets to premier destinations such as Miami, New York, Panama, Rome, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Chicago, London, Dublin, Rio De Janerio, and Toronto. All finishers receive a fantastic t-shirt and goody bag filled with prizes and surprises!
The Walk & Watch program will also be offered again. Ideal for the non-swimmer who wants to be able to take part in the excitement of the Flowers Mile and contribute to a worthy cause at the same time.
All registration proceeds are donated to the Feed Our Future charity which provides healthy meals to needy school children in the Cayman Islands.
Feed our Future received a significant boost when Frank Flowers presented them with a check for $49,000 following the Flowers Sea Swim
The Flowers One Mile Sea Swim got another huge thumbs up from local residents.
It's hard to believe that a event that attracts nearly 900 swimmers started with only 60 not so long ago but that is the case with the annual Flowers One Mile Sea Swim.
The annual Flowers One Mile Sea Swim celebrated its 21st staging and truly came of age on Saturday.
The Flowers Sea Swim means a lot of different things to a lot of different people. For some it is elite competition, for others a personal challenge. For some, it is purely social.
