Since 2010, Curacao has been an independent country within the Kingdom of the Netherlands. Located in the southern part of the Caribbean between the islands Aruba and Bonaire, the number of open water swims have been limited but growing.
The Iguana Open Water Swim is changing the equation.
On May 9th, the Federation Aquatiko Korsou organized 1 km loop in the Bay of Porto Marie for a 5 km race. 15 competitors showed up with Carolus Josefina winning in 1:02:51 followed by Raïm Michiel and Jordan de Windt in 1:03:36 and 1:05:52 respectively in the 14-17 age group.
The Federation Aquatiko Korsou also organized a 1 km Fun Race open to everyone 8 years and older.
