Swimmers to Invade Espiritu Santo

13 May 2013

This year First National Espiritu Santo is very proud to sponsor the inaugural Espiritu Santo Swim Week being held in Vanuatu next month.
The main event, drawing many swimmers to Santo, is the challenging 2.6 km swim from Espiritu Santo to neighbouring Aore Island, across the deep water of Segond Canal.
This has been an annual event on the Pacific Ocean Swim  calendar drawing many visitors from around the world.  For the first time, this year, the organisers have extended the  traditional Aore Island – Espiritu Santo swim to a week-long event with additional fun swims showcasing Santo’s most picturesque beaches. It has been a decision which has proved very popular with more than 70 entrants already scheduled to take to the water in Espiritu Santo next month.
The Espiritu Santo - Aore swim though is much more than just a sporting event. It also serves as a vehicle for the exchange of goodwill  between different cultures. A major highlight for  past swimmers has been the generous support provided by  local ni-Vanuatu, paddling along beside them as they swim.  The event also usually features traditional outrigger canoe races, and people from other islands travel to Santo to participate.
To celebrate this event, First National Real Estate Espiritu Santo is giving away two entry prize packs later this week.  The prize includes entrance fees to all the swims, a number of meals at some of our top resorts, and two nights luxury accommodation for two couples, valued at around $800 AUD.  
The First National Espiritu Santo Swim Week is being held between 16 and 21 June 2013. More information on the swim week can be found on the Ocean Swim Safaris website.
