Every year, at Newquay Harbour, on New Year’s Day, there’s a New Year’s Day Dip. In years gone by I’ve even participated – and came away with a box of chocs 🙂
But boy it’s cold! The year I did it, there was ice on the sand and I was shoeless!
The New Year’s Day Dip is for the RNLI charity – and is usually started by the Mayor of Newquay. If you’re one of the mad fools to rush into the water, then you can get dressed/dried again in the RNLI afterwards, along with a warming cup of coffee.
The New Year’s Day Dip starts at different times each year, tides depending – it’s at Newquay Harbour
See the events calendar!
So keep your eyes posted, or, if you know when it is, let me know!
