Live on the Wild side- join the annual Spring Splash at Fish Hoek Beach on 4 Sept.
START having cold water showers, because it’s training time for the 5th annual Fish Hoek Spring Splash! Held on the first Sunday in September, the Spring Splash will put an instant spring in your step (or, at least, a cold twitch in the one toe that still has feeling left after the swim).
Everyone – sane and insane – is invited to join in this hearty Fish Hoek tradition on Sunday 4 September.
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 exactly 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 Fish Hoek Galley Restaurant.
Families are encouraged to make a day of it. There will be fun activities for children throughout the day. Be there if you’ve got what it takes! For more information, phone Manu Choudree on 072 980 4335.

So, shrug off the winter coats and blues and come down to Fish Hoek Beach on Sunday 4 September for a refreshing start to the season. There is no entrance fee, no registration, no fundraising and no charity to support – this is just for fun! Just bring your friends, your family, your staff, your boss, your neighbour, your kids, your grandparents, swimming gear and loads of attitude!
