Penguin Club

To become a member of the Penguin club you must swim at least 200 metres at least twice a month from November until the end of March in the sea, lake, unheated lido  or river.

You can wear anything you like.

Over 18s only.

This is an honesty challenge - if you cheat you are only cheating yourself.

Email Pauline at  to advise you have completed each swim.

A roll call of Challengees will be posted on the DCWS website.

Payment of £5.00 ( £10 for oversea swimmers ) to enter the challenge and a Penguin award of a certificate and badge will be awarded in April to successful swimmers.
You can pay either by the paypal link at the top of the page or drop me an email if you'd rather pay another way.

Disclaimer - cold water swimming can be dangerous especially if you are not in good health. Please read the SwimSafe advice and ensure you are fit and able to take on the challenge and take the time to read up on the effects of cold water swimming including cold shock response and afterdrop.
