Kristina Evelyn is relentlessly passionate about the Barbados Open Water Festival, an open water swimming festival in Carlisle Bay in Barbados with 1.5 km, 5 km and 10 km races.

Evelyn describes the event, “We offer guided 2 km swims in Carlisle Bay followed by a social at the Copa Cabana Beach Bar on November 2nd. Then we have another guided 2 km swim at the Port St. Charles Yacht Club on the Upper West Coast on November 3rd, followed by a social at the Port St. Charles Luxury Yacht Club and a guided 2 km swim at Miami Beach on the South Coast, followed by another social at the famous Oistins Fish Fry on the 4th.

On the 5th, we have two 1.5 km swims: The Swim the Bay and The Just For Fun swim in the morning, and then open water swimming clinics in Carlisle Bay in the afternoon with an all-day beach party with DJ music. Copa Cabana is a great place to chill out, have some food, some drinks and enjoy the day.

On the 6th, we have the 5 km and 10 km Swim the Bay races as well as the 4-person 10 km relay. On the last day, we offer After Party Cruises on the Jolly Roger Party Boat and Cool Runnings Catamaran.
