Harbour Swim On Christmas Eve

Do you fancy swimming 700m across St Mary’s Harbour on Christmas Eve?

Last year a group of islanders did and the Scilly Sea Swimmers are likely to repeat the challenge on Boxing Day and New years Day.

Ruth Nicholls will be taking part. 18 months ago she didn’t even like getting her hair wet but since then she’s been ‘bitten by the bug’.

Ruth says it’s more social than competitive and she’d encourage anyone to give it a go.

On the 24th the group will swim from the Mermaid to the Mincarlo end of The Strand at 2pm.

You can follow them on Facebook.
