The Polar Bears gather once per year on Clifton 4th Beach on the Saturday closest to the Winter Solstice - Mid Winter - to do what any self respecting polar Bear would do - have a swim!
There has never been rain in 13 years of the Icy Plunge - so the Polar Bear Swim happens rain or shine and so will this event cache.
Bring your swimming kit and something warm to put on afterwards - coffee in flasks and a bit of sherry help too.
Are you brave enough to swim? Or will you just cheer the others on.
The Swim is at 9:30 so arrive before that to make the group dash into the ocean.
The event will end by 11:00 so you must attend before its over! Each year their is a souvenir which you can order before hand to receive at the event or on the day to receive later. I'll update the listing when the souvenir is made known.
