Take the plunge
Every New Year’s Day for the past 29 years the Bray Sea Swim has taken place on Bray Sea Front, organised by Bray Lions Club the swim raises funds for local charities and kicks of the year with a bit of fun.
I have only taken part in 2 of the swims in recent years, my wife has completed 3, but my good friend Tom has swam every year for the last 14/15 years. Each year he comes in fancy dress, his outfit is always a closely guarded secret until he arrives. As far as I know each year, Tom teams up with his friend Ray and over the years their outfits have been cause of great entertainment – they have frequently appeared in local newspapers and even on the national TV news.
This year, Tom appeared as presidential candidate and took the plunge. Well done to all who took part.
Let’s not forget the young people who have taken up the baton and are now becoming regulars.
Watch out for the wave ….
