Boxing Day Swim

West Bay Boxing Day Swim

Mon 26 Dec 2016

Will you be taking a cold dip on Boxing Day?

There are a number of dips taking place across the UK on Boxing Day.

The Tenby Boxing Day Swim in Pembrokeshire, Wales, is the oldest event having started in 1970 and the largest event is organised by the Lions Club in Sunderland where participants take a leap into the North Sea.
