Grand Hyatt to host Swimathon

Grand Hyatt Goa will host Swimathon 2013, troche a swimming event in the open sea at Bambolim Beach on Sunday 24th  March at 8 am.

The event is a fund raiser for Children’s Rights in Goa (CRG), healing an NGO working for the protection of children in Goa.

Swimathon 2013 has three different events – the 2-km full Swimathon where participants will swim a kilometre out into the sea and turn around a boat to head back to the beach; the 1-km Half Swimathon, where the same routine will be followed over 500 metres into the sea and the 250-metre Short Swim where participants will swim parallel to the shore.

Goa Yachting Association (GYA) will provide rescue boats, Drishti will provide trained lifeguards and a Jet Ski, and the Goa Kayaking Club will provide close cover kayak support to make the event full-proof on the safety front. Trained paramedics and doctors will also be on standby.

The event is organized and managed by NRB events and entry forms will be available at select Monginis outlets in Panjim, Margao, Mapusa, Vasco and Ponda and the government swimming pools. Online registration can be done at

Stefan Radstrom, General Manager of Grand Hyatt Goa said it was the hotel’s pleasure to be the hospitality partner for Swimathon.

“We at Grand Hyatt Goa believe in compassion, good work and strive to contribute to the local community. We are keen in partnering this wonderful event which will contribute to a worthy cause.”
