Yuko Matsuzaki completed a 25 km swim in 7 hours 28 minutes across Grace Bay, Turks & Caicos this week.

During the last mile of her solo swim, Matsuzaki was joined by 3-time Olympic gold medalist Rowdy Gaines.

This week, the pair from Orlando, Florida will jointly conduct a variety of sea swim clinics at the Alexandra Resort and Rickie’s Flamingo Cafe leading up to the Turks & Caicos Race for the Conch Eco-SeaSwim.

The Race For The Conch Eco-SeaSwim offers both a 1-mile and 2.4-mile sea swim held at the Grace Bay Beach in front of Flamingo Cafe, next to Club Med in Providenciales – and some of the most beautiful open water swimming trophies in the world [made by famed local artist Stanford Handfield from local conch shells).
