The Cayman Bogue Swim Supports the Central Caribbean Marine Institute

Ten years ago, Kerri Kanuga and her swimming buddies became the first group to complete a 25 stage swim around Grand Cayman Island in the Cayman Islands. Over the next decade, Kanuga and her friends continued swimming around the tropical islands in the Caribbean Sea.

Tomorrow, they set off on the Cayman Bogue Swim as a charity tandem swimin support of the Central Caribbean Marine Institute. They will swim 8 km from Cayman Brac to Little Cayman island.

Kanuga explains, “We’re braving the Bogue to raise funding in support of the excellent work done by the Central Caribbean Marine Institute. The Institute was founded in 1998 to protect coral reefs through research, education and conservation. In 2005, the Little Cayman Research Centre opened, and the site was dedicated by the Institute’s Royal Patron, HRH The Prince Edward, Earl of Wessex, “to sustain biodiversity so that the children of the world may forever discover the treasures of the sea.”
