Flowers Sea Swim: Hundreds take to the open water this weekend


Flowers Sea Swim: Hundreds take to the open water this weekend

The Flowers Sea Swim is celebrating 27 years this Saturday along Seven Mile Beach when swimmers of all ages and nationalities take to the open water in a flurry of arms and legs.

Last year’s race boasted almost 1,000 registrants. Participants vary in age from 8 to 80 years old and in skill from novices and first-timers to experienced athletes.

What began as a small social event has evolved into a world-renowned sporting occasion, featuring Olympic gold medal participants and champion open water specialists with their eye on the prize. And what prizes there are! This is the world’s richest open water event with over $100,000 in cash and random prizes up for grabs. The odds of winning something are 1-in-7, meaning to don’t have to be the fastest to walk away with something. Previous giveaways have included phones, iPads, 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 Janeiro, and Toronto. All finishers receive a T-shirt and goody bag filled with great stuff.

Even if you are not a swimmer, you can get in on the action by walking along the beach parallel to the race. It means everyone has a chance to be a part of the atmosphere that makes the Flowers Sea Swim so popular.

Trophies will be awarded to male and female first, second and third place winners and age group certificates will be presented to all age groups winners.
