The Calm Water Swim Race

was sponsored by 101 Things to Do and was one of the events in the Kaua’i Ocean

Festival, 2000, a benefit for the Kaua’i Food Bank held June 24-25 at Kalapaki

Bay in Nawiliwili.

The Calm Water Swim is a popular race in the calmer

waters of Kalapaki Bay. Athletes run from the sands near the Kaua’i Marriott

and Beach Resort and swim an 800-meter loop before emerging at the same

start-finish line.

Every participant received a “survivors medal” and the

top three finishers (both men and women) received trophies.

Life safety

support crews were in the water for the entire course but were not needed as

the swimmers raced to the finish.

The next Calm Water Swim Races will be

held June 23, 2001 at the Kaua’i Ocean Festival, 2001.
