Wildswim: Festive Swim - Boxing Day
The Walrus Dip at Pembrey Country Park has been going for just over 20 years, with a few hundred swimmers dressed as anything from Vikings to walruses. A just-for-fun event which some entrants use to raise funds for their particular charity - each dipper will receive a certificate and teeshirt afterwards to confirm that they have participated.
The swim is held on the Blue Flag award-winning Cefn Sidan beach, Llanelli, Carmarthenshire. Non-swimmers can walk off the Christmas pudding with a stroll along eight miles of golden beach.
All participants and spectators need to be at tideline for a 11:00am for a prompt start. Because of the popularity of the event it is worth arriving half an hour before start time.
The RNLI and St John's Ambulance are usually in attendance>/p>
