A Grand Adventure In Cayman Islands: Oliver Rush To Pioneer A Circumnavigation Swim Around Grand Cayman

Oliver Rush will attempt an unprecedented 104.6 km circumnavigation swim around Grand Cayman in the Cayman Islands in May 2022.

He explains his motivation, “I aim to raise awareness to combat plastic pollution. Plastic Free Cayman and Project Planet will host a series of community events leading up to the pioneering attempt.

These efforts aim to raise vital funds to keep individuals on the ground actively fighting plastic pollution in the Cayman Islands. This Project will educate, raise awareness, and encourage people to take action against this destruction force that affects all our lives.”

Rush estimates that it will take somewhere between 25 – 30 hours to complete, but it is undecided on which direction he will swim. His team is similar to his Isle of Wight swim and will include Brian Thompson and Scott Dawson.
