The Nevis to St. Kitts Cross-Channel Swim, or the Bente Weber Memorial Swim, is a 2.5-mile inter-island Caribbean Sea swim across the Narrows from Nevis to St. Kitts. It starts at Oualie Beach on Nevis with the finish at Cockleshell Bay on St. Kitts in an area known as the "Narrows". The event record was set by Olivier Marceau in a time of 58:09 in 2011. The men's record is held by Roger Brown in 1:05.38.

In 2012, it also incorporates the Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States open water swimming championships, 1 km ('Short Course') and 4 km ('Long Course') races on Nevis. It is a memorial swim as a tribute to the legacy of Bente Weber.
