The ASATT Maracas Open Water Classic is annually held in Maracas Bay on Trinidad’s north coast in San Juan-Laventille, Trinidad and Tobago. It is one of the longest running open water swims in the Americas.

While the results of the Top 10 swimmers in each of the longest two events were dominated by teenagers, there was one 50-something, Gerry Rodrigues, who nearly achieved a podium finish.
