Take A Dip This Christmas Day With Clontarf Yacht & Boat Club

#CY&BC - The Clontarf Yacht & Boat Club annual Christmas Day Swim in aid of the RNLI is back for 2017.

This year’s swim takes place at 1pm on Monday 25 December at the slipway across from the CY&BC.

Those brave enough to participate — and their supporters wrapped up warm on dry land — are asked to donate any amount, great or small, to the lifeboats on the day.

Dublin Bay sea temperatures are actually coldest in February and March, when most dinghy classes resume training, so there’s no excuse not to head along for a dip before your Christmas dinner.

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
