ISLAND SWIM

May 02, 2020

Below is a message that was sent out by the Mustique Company which I thought we should share as it was such an incredible feat. 

I joined the swim for the last leg, as did others, from Basil's Bar back to the Cotton House jetty.  I saw three little fish, not more than 4" long swimming in Marco's shadow.  Later I asked him if he had noticed them and he said they had accompanied him for 5 hours from the other side of the island!  We hope they found their way home!

"Over the weekend, one of our residents achieved something incredible and we wanted to pay tribute to his achievement and highlight the cause he is raising money for.

On Saturday, 2nd May, Marco set off from Cotton House pier at 6am to circumnavigate the island.  He swam clockwise around the island battling strong currents and heavy swell completing the swim in just under seven hours.  he arrived back at the Cotton house pier at 1pm greeted with enthusiasm and amazement, and accompanied by several supporters who swam the last leg with him from Lagoon Beach.

This astonishing feat was undertaken to raise funds to provide medical equipment, including masks and testing equipment to the wider St. Vincent and the Grenadines community.

Please join us in saying a huge well done to Marco by clicking on the link below and giving as much or as little as you can to support this important cause."
