IT is swim time at Marina Martinique on December 30 when the annual Marina Mile will take place in the pristine salt water canals of the upmarket estate in Jeffreys Bay.

Marina Martinique is rated as one of South Africa’s premier open water swimming venues.

Event organiser, Brenton Williams, says, “A huge turnout of swimmers is expected as the Marina Mile, one of the most popular events on the Jeffreys Bay holiday calendar.

“The Mile caters for all levels of swimmers - from the novice to the swimmers who want to race. The canals are safe and there are no currents or tidal pushes, which makes for a great environment for inexperienced swimmers, as well as those who want to see how fast they can swim a Mile.

“With a water temperature of 25 degrees Celsius, it is advisable not to swim in wetsuits as there is a danger of overheating. However, wetsuits will be allowed.”

This year’s swimming festival includes the Marina Mile at 12:00, the Marina Double Mile at 09:00 (swimmers must be 12 years or older), the Marina Half Mile at 10:0, and the Marina Bank-to-Bank at 11:15 (participants must be 10 years or younger).

Loads of lucky draw prizes will be up for grabs on the morning. Restaurant facilities are available on site at the Marina Wharf Restaurant.
