Ho Ho Ho! Looking for a great way to kick off your festive season in style? Join us for a charity Christmas Cracker Chill Swim, swimming into a festive sunset in the crystal clear waters of Vobster Quay.
Our Christmas Cracker Chill Swim is a great way to celebrate Christmas and we actively encourage each and every participant to get into the spirit of the season by hitting the lake waters in their finest festive head gear. Whether you're a swimming Santa, and elf or a red-nosed reindeer, let's go crazy for Christmas!
Our Christmas Cracker Chill Swim isn't just a very festive swimming experience, it's also an awesome post-swim experience! After a change into warm clothing, join us on the quayside for delicious hot food freshly made by professional chef and fellow Vobster swimmer Dagmar, warming mulled wine and some seriously cool live music, all set against the tranquil backdrop of the lake and our Heatwave firepit.
When you book, you can choose between two very festive - and thoroughly delicious - menu choices created by Vobster swimmer Dagmar:
- Beef Chilli with Rice (GF)
- Veggie Bean Chilli with Rice (Vegan/GF)
Our last swim event of 2023 is the perfect way to kick off your mid-winter celebrations. Treat yourself or someone you know to an early Christmas present and experience the amazing open water swimming community at Vobster.
