As many of you know Wombat (Christine) and I have been trying to raise funds for the Runswick Bay Rescue Boat for some years, Wombat has now decided (after several glasses of wine) that she will take part in the Boxing Day Dip in Whitby. This entails running into the freezing North Sea at 10.40 on Sunday 26 December, you have to be either mad or dedicated to do this, I will be on hand to take photo's, provide a warm blanket and hot water bottle when she comes out and take her home for a hot bath. If anyone would like to sponser this bit of madness she would be ever so grateful, please PM us if you could donate to the Rescue Boat.

Many Thanks

Raggytash

Is there a sponsorship form in the FILO?   
I did the dip a few years back and lost all feeling from the waist down ..... until the defrosting started ..... Aaaaaaargh!
As well as the warm blanket and hot water bottle take a flask of hot mulled wine :) it works wonders :D

For those unable to get down to see the dip on Boxing Day here's a link to the Whitby Weather site page showing the Yacht Club's webcam which has a great view down the pier and slipway.

There's a distinct likelihood that the sea will be warmer than the land tomorrow.

Still - good luck to all who are taking part.

To answer Ray, yes its Jude, Veronica and I doing it together - "Botticellis Angels" strike again, though we probably won't be able to do a lot of singing at this appearance. Hopefully it won't be our farewell performance!

The local radio station has just mentioned the Boxing Day Dip, the weather presenter has said that the air temperature won't get above 0c but the sea will be about 8c ...... tropical :D

The air temperature was well below 0c, the car was frozen to the road, however Wombat walked down and she Jude and Veronica braved the arctic temperatures and duly did the Boxing Day Dip, to date Wombat has raised over £200, if anyone else would like to add to that she and the Rescue Boat would be most grateful.

Commander Crabbe,Stewpot,Wombat and myself also had a session in the Black Horse this afternoon which raised over £100, too knackered to count it at the moment, up all last night watching the cricket, need an hours kip before watching Day 2 of the Ashes.

Cheers
