PHOTOS: Clifton Beach Delivers Fab Annual Polar Bear Challenge

Well done to swimmers in the Western Cape who braved the winter waters for a full 30 minutes today in the Annual Polar Bear Challenge at 4th Beach Clifton.

It was a “stunning day, with ‘pleasant’ 11 degree water,” according to Fish Hoek professional photographer Robyn Gwilt. Here are her (and friend Jennifer Anderson’s) photos to prove it:

“Today the Fish Hoek Beach ‘A’ Team (below) took part…and we all stayed in the water for the full 30 minutes!” says Robyn.
