SAMOA SWIM SERIES 2014

Welcome to SSS 2014 Swims. The Samoa Series is attracting a lot of attention among open water swimmers for the exciting programme of swims, official and unofficial, and all the extra activities around the Series. There is much more to the Samoa Series than the official “3 great swims in 3 days”. From the grand opening of the Series with a march through town behind the Police band leading the parade to the closure with the Prize Giving on a balmy South Pacific evening this is one holiday that you will look back on with very warm feelings. In addition to the three official swims there are the unofficial swims either side of the Series to cater for those who arrive before the series and those who stay after the series. There are also the School visits where swimmers and supporters get to exchange gifts with the local schools. This is a much valued aspect of the Series. Then there are the side-tours and the sense of community that develops amongst the travellers from far and wide as we travel together in the local buses to event sites. Lifelong friendships are formed in Samoa with fellow swimmers. We look forward to hosting you in 2014.
