Charity Santa Swim

Thank you and congratulations to all those who participated in the Traditional Charity Santa Swim on Christmas Day in Armação de Pêra.

The weather was warm with blue skies and the sea was fairly calm, (unfortunately the low tide meant it was a little rocky) with a temperature of about 21ºC.
Santas started arriving from 10.15am, and at 11.00am a great number of Santas ran toward the sea for their annual dip in the ocean
Our thanks to film crews from TVI, SIC, and CMTV who came to record the event.

Everyone enjoyed a very welcome glass of Hot Chocolate and Brandy in the Holiday Inn Algarve Bar afterwards.
A big thank you to all who participated, the media for helping with the publicity, Diogo Correia who photographed the event, the paddlers from BlueXperience who added to the excitement and for all the donations - almost 800 Euros was raised for ‘Espaço Amigos’ charity in Armação de Pêra and ‘A Gaivota’ in Albufeira.
