CHALLENGECAPETOWN are super proud to announce the partnership with Blu_Smooth Wetsuits as their Official Wetsuit Partner for the iconic event taking place in 2021.
Blu_Smooth, a genuinely South African company, have burst on to the open water swimming scene since their founder, Kevin Richards returned back to the Rainbow Nation after many years of travelling and competing on the international triathlon circuit. Kevin worked in the wetsuit industry abroad, spending huge amounts of time immersed in the latest wetsuit developments. Harnessing his vast experience and knowledge he turned his attention and focus into developing blu_smooth wetsuits.
Uncomplicated in design and utilising the finest wetsuit fabric available ,Blu Smooth continues to deliver quality and value to it’s rapidly growing following.
“We are absolutely delighted to have Blu_Smooth as a partner for our fantastic event” said Damian Bradley, Race Director of CHALLENGECAPETOWN. “Not only are their wetsuits and product of world- class level, they align with the same sustainable vlues that we have”.
Blu_Smooth and CHALLENGECAPETOWN are looking to come together in the next few moths to host some open water swims, as well as beach clean ups- furthering the involvement of the partnership in protecting the South African shoreline from pollution. (Dates and details to follow shortly).
“CHALLENGECAPETOWN is an event we believe that we really can get behind” said Kevin Richards, the man behind Blu_Smooth’s success. “We are environmentally aligned and stand for the same principles- quality, professionalism and athlete safety. We believe that together we can not only educate and inform the athletes about wetsuits, but help them enjoy the beauty that is Open Water Swimming for years to come”.
CHALLENGECAPETOWN are proud to have such a genuine game changer on board. Look out for the upcoming sea swims and clinics on social media in the next few weeks!
