about the dip

We are so excited to be organising the Barry Island New Years day Dip this year! Please take into account a couple of changes to this years event:

  • There are three registration options available - the £1.00 and £5.50 options allow us to send your unique wristband in the post so you do not need to come to registration on the day! Therefore, that means extra time in bed!
  • The event village is on the Eastern Shelter of the promenade this year to allow for more space. The dip will still commence in the centre of the beach. 
  • Registration will open from 10:00am and the dip will commence at 12:30pm due to the tide times.

We are encouraging all participants to pre register so we have all your information already. If you choose to register on the day of the event then you will experience queuing. 

What to bring on the day?

Don't forget you will need to bring with you your wristband on the day! If you forget this then please come to the information tent on the day where we can issue you with a new one. 

Be safe in the water!

Make sure you take a read at our water safety document located on the main page. This will inform you of who we recommend should not take part in the event as well as how to be safe in the water.

After the dip 

You will be sent a green wristband if you have chosen the £5.50 option which includes a medal after the dip. Make sure you come back to registration under the Eastern Shelter where you will be handed your medal.
