Hey Swimmers, Coaches, and Adventure Seekers,
Alii from Palau! I want to invite you and your friends to come out to Palau this June 7th-9th for our stunning "One of a kind" event. The ,ÄúPalau Open Water Weekend,Äù is an action-packed Three-day Open Water festival, which consists of a ,ÄúBeach Water Polo,Äù day in the Rock Islands, an Open Water race off Palau's most prestigious resort, and capped off with two "Adventure Swims" in the Rock Islands, creating a weekend that you will never forget!
To give you a little glimpse of what,Äôs going on, Friday, we will start off the weekend with an "Beach Water Polo" Game out in our beautiful Rock Islands brought to us by our friends with Kap7 Water Polo. This will be the second year of this event, and to the day, we still always talk about how great last year's day was out there. It is just for fun, and nothing too serious, just a great way to have fun in our beautiful ocean.
On Saturday, we will host the famous "Palau Open Water Race", which is our fourteenth year holding this prestigious event. Off the shore of one of the most beautiful beaches in all of Palau, our race will be offering five different distance options for all levels of swimmers: the 250m, 500m, 1.5K, 3K, and the 5K. Awards will be given for the top 3 finishers in each age group and distance, and on top of the light breakfast buffet, each swimmer will receive a commemorative event shirt. So we can all get to know each other more, we will also have an event dinner that night to celebrate the weekend under a stary night sky at the Belau National Museum.
On Sunday, we will have the most fun imaginable, as we do our "Rock Island Adventure Swims", where will do two unique and different open water swims outside among Palau's Pristine Rock Islands and premier Dive Sites. Neither one of the swims are considered a race, and the swimmers are encouraged to simply enjoy the view as we swim the best locations in Palau's breathtaking Rock Islands together. Also, a special commemorative gift will also be given at the end to each swimmer who participates in the entire weekend.
I hope you strongly consider this trip, as truly, it is the most fun week imaginable. I attached our information booklet for you to check out as well, which will give you a better idea of the event.
Please let me know if you have any questions, and/or want to register for this amazing weekend. Hope to see you in June!
