Grand Bahama Island - It’s time once again for family favourite summer event - the 38th Annual Bernie Butler BASRA Swim Marathon and Beach Party. Each year, the Bahamas Air Sea Rescue Association seeks to raise funds for their vital services. Come on down, Saturday, August 16th to Coral Beach, just off Royal Palm Way near Coral Road. Events take place all day...
The Bahamas Air Sea Rescue Association (Grand Bahama) is a dedicated non-profit voluntary organization committed to saving the lives of distressed seamen or airmen in the Bahamas. They are supported only by private donations and therefore require your support through their fundraising projects. Aside from the costs of their daily operations and rescue efforts, they are seeking to purchase modern lifesaving equipment like defibrillators. In addition, they are looking to the future where they can have a permanent waterfront base of operations with their own building, on Grand Bahama.
The Swim Marathon is two miles long and encourages fitness enthusiasts of all ages and skill levels to come out and swim from Our Lucaya to Coral Beach. The kids get involved with a one mile and mile swim. This is always an exciting event, with the fastest swimmers taking thirty minutes to finish, to the last hardy competitors completing in about two hours. Right after this epic event is the famous beach party on Coral Beach. The general public is invited to attend and take part in the biggest beach party of the season. There will be food, games, beverages, and it’s fun to meet up with people you haven’t seen in a while. Of course, since it’s a beach party, it’s also the place for the girls to show off their figures in the latest styles of bikinis.
