The 2019 Maui Channel Swim will be on Saturday, August 31, 2019.
The event is sanctioned by WOWSA, not USMS. 
Registration and membership in WOWSA provides you with accident insurance for all properly sanctioned events and supervised practices of member clubs.

The Maui Channel Swim is the only inter-island relay event in the world!  The swim begins on the island of Lanai and finishes at Kaanapali beach on Maui. Each relay is made up of six swimmers, each swimming for 30 minutes. Once all six swimmers have completed their 30-minute rotation each will then swim 10-minute shifts until they have completed the swim. Coach Bobby Patten puts together the teams and will handle getting each team an escort boat and competent skipper to guide you and your teammates successfully across the beautiful blue water of the Maui Channel.

MCS Cost - $560.00, Registration fee due no later than July 5, 2019
