Bude’s Christmas Day Swim

Well, having a head cold (which these days can always be Covid so one errs on the side of caution) I missed this year’s Christmas swim at Crooklets. Not that I am ever brave enough to go in, but I enjoy the spectacle, and know many of you do brace yourselves to enjoy a dip.

Also means I didn’t get any photos this year, so it would be great to see yours. Two negative tests later, who knew, it seems to just be a cold (not had one for about two years so an unpleasant novelty).

Things were obviously different at the swim this year with Covid limitations in place but Bude SLSC provided safety cover as ever for those wanting a freezing Christmas Day dip.

The photo is from their Facebook page. If you haven’t donated yet, you still can here.

This wonderful Bude organisation helps keep people safe at the beaches, often assisting the RNLI lifeguards, too. Please be generous as they could not collect donations at the event this year.
