Barracudas Sports Club organised its first Open Water Swim event on 7 May 2023. Participants completed the 3-kilometre-long swim, two laps in total, at the bay before Barracudas Sports Club, Stella Maris Street, St Paul’s Bay.
Before the start of the swim, every participant received gifts, including towels, swimming caps, and cosmetics. Barracudas Sports Club thanks all the sponsors for supporting today’s event. (This event was sponsored by Decathlon, La Roche-Posay, Arkó, 3Tech, JB Stores and Dion Barbieri from DBR Group.)
