The Freedom Swim Series (“FSS”) is a succession of cold water Cape ocean swim races to promote swimming and to raise funds for good causes. FSS was founded by Ram Barkai in 2004. It is currently managed by Big Bay Events Company and profits after costs are donated to SEAL Open water Trust.
Each swim takes place on a public holiday specifically to celebrate these significant days and South Africa’s history and heritage. They aim to raise awareness of the significance of these public holidays and to give back by raising funds for causes which are related… to these national public holidays.
