Sue Dyson has a clear goal in mind when it comes to the inaugural St. Lucia Channel Swim, a 34 km swim between St. Lucia in the south and Martinique in the north.

"Our goal is to be the pre-eminent warm water epic swim globally. We have the participation for this event by the St Lucia Tourism and Sports Ministries as well as many local organizations.

The event will involve open water swim clinics, 1 km, 3 km and 5 km races on July 8th, and pre- and post-race media events.

The signature 34 km swim is set for July 7th with a back-up weather date of July 9th. Included in the registration is a social dinner/briefing the day before and a post-race social event and an opportunity to to interact with local media covering the event
.

The channel crossing is 34 km of beautiful Caribbean Sea with gorgeous landscapes ahead and behind of the high volcanic islands of St Lucia and Martinique. There is a solo swimmer category and a 2- and 4-person relay category. Swimmers need to be able to complete a minimum of 3000 meters per hour over the 34 km crossing. Wetsuits are not allowed and water temperatures will be warm."

Registration is open on our Facebook page here.
