This is the Caribbean’s Greatest Swimming Event

By: Caribbean Journal Staff - January 17, 2024

The Caribbean’s greatest swimming event is back again in April, with the return of the annual Nevis to St Kitts Cross Channel Swim. 

The four-kilometer race, which crosses the narrows between the two islands, will be held on April 6, 2024. 

The swim begins at Oualie Beach and crosses the “Narrows,” a small strait separating St Kitts and Nevis, before finishing at St Kits’ stunning Cockleshell Bay. 

It’s the 23rd edition of the event, which has featured appearances by everyone from International Swimming Hall of Fame member Karlyn Pipes to Olympic gold medalist Ashley Whitney in previous years.
