Join the Pattaya Cross Bay Swim
It is the time of year for the annual Pattaya Cross Bay swim, now in its 9th year, which this year will be held on Sunday November 25. This event is arranged each year by the Rotary Club of Jomtien-Pattaya to raise funds for their Children’s Fund, which is used to improve the life of the young of our community.
There are three swims in this event, ranging from a short 600 meter short fun swim from the Hard Rock Hotel to Central Festival Mall; to a competitive short swim of 1.5km from Hard Rock Hotel to Chaba Beach at the Dusit Thani Pattaya,; and for the strong swimmers, a 3.5km swim across the bay from the Siam Bayshore Beach across to Chaba Beach.
Strong swimmers compete in the 3.5km swim across the bay from the Siam Bayshore Beach across to Chaba Beach during the last event.
As well as the water sports, this year we are holding a children’s afternoon on the beachside plaza at Central Festival, where young members of our community will entertain you while you see clips of the swim on the big screen. Presentation of the trophies to the winners of the competitive swims will take place in the late afternoon.
With the help and blessings of City Hall, water safety by the Marine Department’s Sea Rescue staff, and a surprise VIP guest at Central Festival, it will be an event that you do not want to miss.
Sponsors are always welcome, and swimmers for all three events can still sign-up. More information on www.crossbayswim.com – email [email protected] or call either Brendan Key on 08 4033 6296 or Graham Hunt-Crowley on 08 1340 8852.
