A charity fancy dress swim at midday on Boxing Day. Originally off East Beach, but from 2009 held within the safety of the marina (outer harbour). This year organised by the Bridport Round Table, there will be a public collection for Round Table local charities but swimmers can be sponsored for their own favourite charity. The Mayor will judge the fancy dress and send the swimmers off. Last year there were 55 swimmers and a crowd of about 3,000. No charge to enter or watch. Be early to ensure easy parking.
