SOUTHERN NEW YEARS DIPS 2015

Recommended Posts

Now in its 14th year, with 55 individual dips under their belt the SOUTHERN DIPPERS are pleased to announce the 2015 New Years Day Dips.

To date the SOUTHERN DIPPERS have raised in excess of £37,000 for a number of charities over the years and the group are happy to announce the 2015 chosen charity will be for
MANX BREAST CANCER SUPPORT GROUP.

2014 saw some of the stormiest weather to hit the Island in 50 years and for the first time in its short history, Chapel Beach had to be cancelled but Port St Mary’s Harbour was done twice.

The group has grown from the 7 in 2002 to well over 200 dippers for the finale at Port Erin last year, where creative fun fancy dress is the order of the day and a swift hot/cold drink in the nearest hostelries.

The landlords have always been so welcoming considering their late night New Year’s Eve events but every year they welcome us back. This year one of the original 7 swimmers, Paddy Croft opens the doors of THE FISH HOUSE after the first swim for a cup of his famous fish soup. Kay, Pat and Hannah at the Albert are on hand to serve refreshments at the Albert after the 2nd swim. Mark, Debbie and Andy at the Shore provide Hot Chocolates and home made cookies for the 3rd swim at Gansey whilst Debbie, Martin, Marcel, Matt and team welcome everyone to the finale outside the Bay Hotel for the final lunge!

This years cash prizes for best fancy dress are being donated by Marcel Ltd. The theme is open so be as imaginative as you dare!

Sponsors for this years dip, without who this would not be possible are
POKERSTARS/DOMICILIUM/SURE MOBILE/THE FISH HOUSE/QUINE&CUBBON/SOUTHERN CHRONICLE

Sponsor forms will be available from the Event Organiser and SURE MOBILE Port Erin Office (including a SURE goodie bag) and THE FISH HOUSE Port St Mary.
Bucket collections will take place at all the entry points.
