The 48th Christmas Morning Swim took place today at Sandy Bay, Porthcawl. The event saw more than 900 people take part, according the organisers.
The swim is a truly family event with many different generations of the same family taking to the sea and many in fancy dress.
Amongst today’s swimmers were two visitors from S Africa, 20 year old Thomas Owens and his 18 year old brother Jamie, grandchildren of the late Arlon Owens, who was one of the founder members of the Christmas swim.
Collections took place for Porthcawl RNLI and Wales Air Ambulance.
