Join the celebration of the People of the South to shrug off winter and welcome the start of season. Tourism is everyone’s business so let’s do it together. It’s free, it’s fun and we want as many people as possible to join together for a spring splash. No registration, no entry fee, no charity, no fundraising – it’s just a fun day with a group swim to celebrate the season!  Bring your friends, relatives, kids, grandparents, staff …and yourself.

Everyone – sane and insane – is invited to join in this hearty Fish Hoek tradition on Sunday 1 September, 2013. If you love the slightly eccentric gees of Fish Hoek, step forward to the starting line just before 15:00, when the countdown will take place.

At 15:00, the signal will sound for the mad dash into the water to welcome the calendar start of spring. Of course, thanks to global warming and other inscrutable mysteries, the calendar is not always right – but what the heck, someone needs to take the lead.

Celebrate your victory afterwards with warming refreshments at reduced prices for all swimmers, served up by the Fish Hoek Galley Restaurant.

See you there (rain or shine!!)- everyone is welcome!
