3,000 expected to join Sunday’s Marine Cup
Open water swimming, beach soccer and beach volleyball are among 16 events wrapped into this year’s Marine Cup in Okinawa, a comprehensive outdoor series of activities in Tomigusuku City.
The weekend Marine Cup in Okinawa at Toyosaki Chura SUN Beach is expected to attract 3,000 participants, about triple what showed up for the first-ever event a year ago. The two-day event is open to all competitors. A Japanese only website provides more details of the water sports; http://www.shakai-sc.or.jp/marinecup/.
The Marine Cup, organizers say, leads to
activation of a number of sporting events, sending energy out across the entire nation, promoting marine and beach sports in Okinawa.
