Still No Word on Carifta Swimming Championships 2021

Under normal circumstances, Bermuda Swimmers would have been preparing to return home from Bridgetown, Barbados from the 2021 CARIFTA Swimming Championships, but in the latest update from officials in Barbados recently, there is no telling when that event will happen, as the region is still battling the COVID-19 pandemic.

There were no CARIFTA Swimming Championships last year, due to the presence of COVID-19 and the meet has already been postponed from its original date over the Easter holiday weekend this year.

Due to a spike in cases in Barbados in January, the host country placed restrictions on events in early February, and organizers were forced to postpone the meet. It has been two weeks since the host venue, the Barbados Aquatic Center, reopened after closing on January 6th.

In the latest communication sent out by the president of the Barbados Aquatic Sports Association (BASA), Lady Cheryl Forde, it was stated that an update will be given on May 1st on the status of the championships and possible cancellation.

With the level of uncertainty that surrounds the hosting of CARIFTA, I beg your indulgence if you would allow us to make a decision by May 1st as to the feasibility of hosting CARIFTA 2021. If we should receive clearance before May 1st, I will definitely inform you immediately. If at that time there is no clear indication that conditions will allow us to proceed, it may become necessary to cancel the event, the statement read.
