19km Fiji Swim
A 19km Fiji Swim relay will be held on Thursday, 25 August 2011, starting from the beach at the Sofitel Fiji Resort & Spa on Denarau Island and finishes 19km later on Beachcomber Island, Fiji. A highlight of the relay is swimming past many of tropical islands of the Mamanuca group each of which is a tropical coral atoll that has literally grown out of the sea, while the Nukuasiga sand bar is still treeless, waiting for its first coconut to arrive and take root. Swimmers take to the course either as teams of five, duo or solo. With each team/duo/solo swimmer accompanied by a boat and kayak for the distance. Teams and duos are free to rotate swimming between themselves as they please. A pre-race briefing session will be held the night before the relay, on 24 August, at the Sofitel Fiji Resort & Spa. The briefing is compulsory for all swimmers, boat captains and kayakers. For more information, pls email firstname.lastname@example.org.
