NO5603 : Mad but nice

near to Anstruther Wester, Fife, Great Britain

Mad but nice
Mad but nice
Long after most of the tourists have gone home for another year the people of Anstruther and district jump off the harbour wall and swim across to the other side. This event takes place on or near Jan 1st each year, depending on tides. Ok not everybody does it but around 30 do. They do it for local charities and yes the water is very cold. Mad but nice.
