I wish I could think of a smart-arsed reply to your smart-arsed post, but my mind is at a blank. Kudos Sir

I think Polwart's wrong. I make it that Santa will be somewhere over the US mainland (he doesn't deliver before midnight, you know!).

Nonetheless, it made me laugh and looks like a worthwhile charity. Wear the cap appropriately and €20 donated ! Good luck. David

Pics...

OK well I held up my end of the bargain, and here's the proof!

The tide was out, so instead of jumping from the tower we had to run in from the beach. Myself and a friend (In Santa hats) running in:






Look who made an appearance:




The place was PACKED with people:




A small drink to warm myself up



It was fecking FREEZING, really cold without a wetsuit. You wouldn't last long in the water this time of year - If anything the swim makes you respect the water even more... if you fell off your boat in your clothes you're a gonner!

Happy XMas everyone, thanks so much for the donations (Hope COPE are greatful too for your generousity!)
