1st Sunday Of Month Swim (“1SOMS”) was established on 1 January 2005 … there were 5 participants.. since then unique race numbers have been issued to over 4000 swimmers.

Annually over 1 million meters are swum. We cater for all levels of swimmers from novice to Olympian.. We challenge the elements and raise the level of open water swimming in Cape Town and indeed internationally.
