Main Story: Pirates Week sporting events
The Pirates Week 5K is Cayman’s oldest swimming tradition and takes place on Saturday, Nov. 9.
Last year there were two world class swimmers participating: Olympic gold winner Ous Mellouli, and Ashley Twichell, a medal winner in the US Open Water Nationals. Local heroes Shaune and Brett Fraser also participated after recently competing in the Olympics.
The top three male and female finishers will receive Pirates Week plaques and there will also be plaques for the top three in the different age groups.
This year’s race will be a loop course starting for the first time at the Westin Grand Cayman on Seven Mile Beach, at 8 a.m. (subject to weather conditions). Registration is on the day between 7 and 7.45 a.m.
