Bente Weber Cross Channel Swim 2018



If the open waters of the warm Caribbean Sea call to you, then the Bente Weber Nevis to St Kitts Cross Channel Swim on 25 March is right up your alley.

The 2.5miles (4km) swim crossing the narrow strip of sea separating Nevis from St Kitts has been a fixture on the sister islands’ calendar of events for 17 years. It is one of the most popular open water swim events in the region.

The swim was started as a way of remembering and acknowledging the support of one of the club’s early members ‘Bente Weber’ who sadly passed away from cancer.

One of the major aims of the swim is to encourage and develop local and regional youth in the sport of open water swimming.

Swimmers begin the race at 8am from Oualie Beach on Nevis and make the journey across the Narrows to finish at Cockleshell Beach on St Kitts.

The swim can be completed in three ways: racing, assisted and team relay.

Those making the swim in the racing category may only wear regulation swimwear and goggles. This is the prize category.

Those swimming in the assisted class may use fins, snorkels, masks, wetsuits, and/or flippers; they will not be eligible for prizes. Four person relay teams can also make the crossing, with each member completing 1km.

The Bente Weber Nevis to St Kitts Cross Channel Swim partners with the St Kitts and Nevis Special Olympics Group to raise awareness and funds for this important sporting project.

For more information on registration and the swim please see the Bente Weber Nevis to St Kitts Cross Channel Swim website.
