Chilly dip in Boundary Bay to start the year
Hangover cure? One of the vows on you list for the new year? Or, perhaps just a way to get some time on the beach with a few hundred or so friends?
Whatever your reason, the annual Polar Bear Swim Boundary Bay Regional Park in Tsawwassen (300-498 Boundary Bay Rd.) is set for Jan. 1, 2012.
Swimmers head in to the sure to be chilly waters at 1p.m. sharp and all participants will be out by 1:05 p.m.
Prizes will be awarded to first, second and third place swimmers to reach the bell. Prizes will also go to the oldest swimmer and the swimmer who has traveled the furthest distance for the event.
Spectators are welcome and all are encouraged to attend in warm clothing and sturdy waterproof footwear.
