Mostly residents of the British Virgin Islands support the event. However, several participants hail from the United States Virgin Islands and places as far as Australia, the US and England.

Cassandra Contreras, of St. John, was competing in the event for the first time.

“I love open water swims,” Contreras said, who did the Beach to Beach Swim on St. John the weekend before. “I wanted to do another swim.”

She finished the two-mile swim in 1h 35m 54s.  Contreras works on a day charter boat in the USVI, which comes to the BVI on a regular basis, but it was her first time in Virgin Gorda’s North Sound.

“I enjoyed it,” Contreras said. “It was a nice swim, pretty straight forward.”
