Christmas Day Swim 2013

Earn your seaside stripes this year by taking part in the Bude Christmas morning swim! Every year hundreds of brave folks pitch up at Crooklets Beach for a refreshing dip to help raise money for the oldest Surf Life Saving Club in the Northern Hemisphere. This year organisers are aiming for their biggest ever turnout - over 600 sponsored swimmers! Sponsorship forms will be available from Zuma Jays and from the Bude Surf Life Saving Club website.

A great Christmas tradition for swimmers and spectators, the annual swim takes place in memory of Mike Moyles - a lifetime supporter of the Life Saving Club.

Here's the scoop:

When: The swim will start at 11:00am on Christmas Day. Arrive early for the pre-swim warm-up.

Grin and bare it: Swimmers of all ages (from 8 up if accompanied by an adult) are welcome to take part in the mad-cap-splash but only those 12 and under are allowed to wear wetsuits! To stave off the cold, swimmers will be led in a group warm-up on the beach by the club’s resident fitness trainer, David Herman, before the klaxon sounds at 11:00am to signal the dash for the waves.

Competition: This year there will be a competition for the swimmer with the best Christmas hat. A winner will be chosen from among the under 13s, under 21s and ‘senior splashers’.

The after-party:

We'll be getting into the Christmas spirit at Tommy Jacks! Swimmers, spectators and jolly-makers can stop-by on Christmas day from 10:00am - 1:00pm. See you there for warm toddies and snacks!
