24 swimmers raced 3 different courses (5 km, 7.5 km, 10 km) at the Point-a-Pierre Yatch Club Harbour in Point-a-Pierre, Trinidad in qualification races for the Caribbean Island Swimming Championships and the FINA Junior World Open Water Swimming Championships in the 14-17 and 18 & over categories.

Carifta Swim Team manager, Shastri Sankar created a 1250m course so the athletes could race 4 loops (for the 5 km), 6 loops (for the 7.5 km), and 8 loops (for the 10 km). Swimmers in the 10 km race were also timed at the end of 4 loops and 6 loops to get their times for the shorter events.
