This year’s annual Jong Bonaire Swim to Klein Bonaire is very special as there are actually two swims during the event!
Everyone will gather at the beach at Spice Beach Club at Eden Beach Resort on Sunday morning, October 4, 2015. Registration is at 8:30 AM for the public swim, which will take place at 10:00 AM after an official “DJ” warm-up session at 9:30 AM. This fun swim, suitable for anyone of any age, is not a race. For those who do not wish to swim back, there are many boats available to pick up people and return them back to the shoreline. Participants can use fins, masks, or even flotation devices.
But, at 9:00 AM, there will be an official competition for the Barracudas, Bonaire’s open water swim team. These competitors will be racing to Klein and back and you’ll be amazed at how fast they will be back on the beach!
Throughout the day there will be music from DJs, a steel band, and Sabor live band from Curacao to help wash down the wonderful BBQ that is planned. Make a day of it on the beach in Bonaire–it doesn’t get any better than that!
