Maracas Bay Open Water Classic

From Openwaterpedia

ASATT Maracas Bay Open Water Classic is one of the oldest races in the Americas. Held in Trinidad in September, it offers 750m, 2.65K and 5K races. With jungle covered hills sloping down to Maracas Bay on the north coast of Trinidad, this long-running swim is one of the most exotic anywhere.

West Indies Bluewater Swim Series

The Series includes four exciting world-class open water swimming events held throughout the beautiful waters of the Caribbean Sea. These swim races span and reflect the diversity of the West Indian islands with the Turks & Caicos in the north (just below the Bahamas), St. John (USVI) a little farther southeast next to Puerto Rico, Nevis in the middle of the archipelago, and Trinidad to the south.

The first race is the StarMile2.5 Nevis-St. Kitts, a 2.5-mile Cross-Channel Swim on 25 March 2012. The second is the St. John Beach-to-Beach Power Swim, 1- , 2.25- and 3.5-mile swim on 27 May 2012 in St John in the U.S. Virgin Islands. The third race is the Race for the Conch Eco-SeaSwim, a 1- and 2.4-mile swim on 7 July 2012 in Turks & Caicos. The fourth race is the Maracas Bay Open Water Classic, a 750m, 2.65K Race and 5K Race in Trinidad.
