The Paignton Walk Into the Sea started on 26th December, 1976 and what was a one-off has now become a major Christmas Holiday attraction, with numerous charities benefitting from the event.  Fancy dress competition at 11.45, and the swimmer with the best costume will walk home – albeit soggily – with a highly coveted trophy.
