Fancy dress and cold waters!

Sidmouth annual Boxing Day Swim! Are you brave enough to charge into the sea with others for the traditional spectacle that sees hundreds of people brave the cold! As tradition states, it's the best way to cleanse yourself from the indulgence of Christmas Day!

The Sidmouth Regatta Committee organise the event in conjunction with the Sidmouth Lifeboat to ensure that the event is well looked after.

All entrants are asked to sign up and congregate in front of the Sailing Club at the east end of the esplanade from around 10:30am to show off their fancy dress. The main event starts at 11:00am until as long as you can stand the temperatures!

Brave or crazy?

Fancy dress and a winter dip this boxing day at 10:30am on the esplanade!
