Early on the morning of Nov 13th, 2018, Cameron Bellamy completed his swim in 40 hours and 43 minutes, a full circumnavigation around the island of Barbados.
Barbados has been fortunate for many years and has not experienced a major hurricane since 1955. One reason is geographic location. Barbados is located further south than many of the islands that have been repeatedly affected and is said to lie outside of the “hurricane belt”.
In 2016, Barbados enjoys a golden year of 50 years and the Barbados Open Water Festival (BOWF) will enjoy a milestone of its own as it hosts its fifth event Nov 2-6.
