The Bente Weber Memorial Swim or the Nevis to St. Kitts Cross-Channel Swim is a 2.5-mile inter-island Caribbean Sea swim from Nevis to St. Kitts. It starts at Oualie Beach on Nevis with the finish at Cockleshell Bay on St. Kitts in an area known as the "Narrows". The event record was set by Rhian Purdy in a time of 1:05:21. The men's record is held by Roger Brown in 1:05.38.
