The Club Natació Atlètic-Barceloneta is organising the 22nd edition of the ‘First swim of the year’, an activity for hardy souls brave enough to start 2019 by taking a dip at the beach.
A solidarity registration cost of three euros was introduced last year. In addition, for everybody signing up to take part, the Club Natació Atlètic-Barceloneta and the Obra Social La Caixa will each be donating the same amount. Money raised this year will go to the Amics de l’Hospital del Mar to help with research and the fight against ovarian cancer.
Hot broth will be served straight after the activity to help swimmers get over the low water temperatures.
Anyone wishing to take part should sign up in advance using the website for the Club Natació Atlètic-Barceloneta.
