The ASATT Maracas Open Water Classic is one of the oldest open water swimming competitions held in the Americas. Held in Trinidad this weekend, it offers 750m, 2.65 km and 5 km races. With jungle-covered hills sloping down to Maracas Bay on the north coast of Trinidad, this long-running swim is one of the most exotic anywhere.
