The Big Wave in the Lighthouse Swim

11 June, 2019

FXTM’s original series of educational events – Touchdown in Cape Town: The Big Wave – concluded with the sponsored Lighthouse Swim. Supporting this extreme and challenging swim was a fantastic way to end the unique series of Big Wave events in Cape Town.

The Lighthouse Swim, hosted by Big Bay Events, took place on 26 May. It was an extreme 10km swim which commenced at the Milnerton Lighthouse before heading north to Big Bay itself. While this event was designed for more advanced swimmers, there was also an opportunity for the less experienced to join in with a relay option.

Thirty enthusiastic swimmers gathered for this event, supported by over 100 encouraging spectators who cheered them on all the way. Despite the vast distance, everyone completed the race successfully and in good time. The brave participants also informed us that, while it was a difficult swim, it was well worth the challenge!

Big Bay Events are the founders of the ‘Splash and Make a Difference’ programme, which received the proceeds from the Lighthouse Swim. This fantastic project provides swimming lessons and drown-proofing to disadvantaged communities, encouraging children to develop a love of safe swimming. FXTM was honoured to sponsor such an important cause as their values and respect for community naturally align with our own.

The Big Wave has been an absolutely brilliant experience for FXTM and we hope our participants thoroughly enjoyed each and every event as much as we did. Particularly significant highlights included both the Big Wave Dinner and the Beach Clean with UN Patron of the Oceans and FXTM Brand Ambassador Lewis Pugh, as well as our Head of Education’s signature Ultimate Trading Formula workshop* – all of which allowed us to spread our passion for trader education while simultaneously connecting with the local community.

FXTM would like to thank everybody for helping to make the Big Wave such a unique experience, especially those who joined us at these events.
