What? You’re Not Going To The Jeffreys Bay Winter Fest 2017?

Cold Water Swimming

It's not that cold once you're in and can't feel your face anymore
It’s not that cold once you’re in and can’t feel your face anymore.

The Cold Water Classic is perfect for those braves who laugh in the face of ice bears. It’s a great way to adjust your body to Siberian conditions, should you wish to move there someday.

Swim a triple mile in sub 15 degree Celsius water. But don’t stress; you’re not doing it naked. You’re allowed to wear swim briefs (ladies, slightly more), goggles and a swim cap. (English Channel swimming rules.)

For the feeble there are one mile and double mile events for which you’re allowed to wear a wetsuit.

Important note: No late entries accepted, ONLY pre-entries.
