Wildswim: Festive Swim - Boxing Day
In 2007, 184 swimmers registered for the free dip, and hundreds of supporters came out to watch. Fancy dress is traditional - in 2007 two swimmers took to the water as a pantomine polar bear. Starting 11:00am by the lifeboat station
Kate Rew: Because of the potentially icy conditions Sidmouth Regatta Committee and Sidmouth RNLI ask entrants to sign a disclaimer before taking part, and Sidmouth lifeboat will be on hand during the swim.
Anybody wishing to take part should sign in and gather in front of Sidmouth sailing and Sea Angling Club at 10.30am on Boxing Day to show off their fancy dress.
The swim itself takes place at around 11am.
