Boxing Day dip, today

People brave enough to face this year’s Boxing Day Swim need to get down to Cobo for 11:00 this year.

The Cheshire Home is hosting the event for the 19th time in 2018, which every year sees hundreds of courageous islanders face the icy water in an effort to burn off some Christmas calories.

If you are going to brave it, the event will run from 11:00 until 12:00 at Cobo.

Swim caps will be available on the day, with mince pies and mulled wine lined up at the Rockmount for after the dip.

A spokesperson for the Cheshire Home said parking was always an issue because the event is so popular, so anyone going should try and car share if they can.
