Is it any wonder that someone as passionate about open water swimming like Ben Stubenberg moved to Turks & Caicos?

The California native is the Co-Race Director together with Chloe Zimmerman of the Race For The Conch Eco-SeaSwim.

He serves as the Turks & Caicos Islands Swim Federation president and was instrumental in creating the world’s first exclusive open water swimming zone in an ocean in Turks & Caicos.
