The Lake Windermere Open Water Swim is now part of the CANAQUA SPORTS INC. open water swim series in an effort to promote the sport of Open Water Swimming, local triathlon events, and other aquatic festivals that occur throughout the year across Canada. Open Water Swimming is an Olympic sport and this is an exciting time for the sport in Canada.
We have added an additional swim distance of 1 Km last year so participants now have a choice of three swim distances to choose from 1 Km, 2 Km and 5 Km. These are out and back swims which start and finish at James Chabot Provincial Park/Athalmer Beach in Invermere, BC.
Invermere is a very popular tourist destination, providing upscale restaurants, quaint cafes and pubs, and a good variety of accommodation options for visitors. Lake Windermere is warm and actually a widening of the mighty Columbia River with the headwaters located 20 kilometers south of Invermere.
