Welcome in the New Year with Stonehaven’s traditional Nippy Dip at the harbour!

TIME: Wednesday 1st January with registration from 12.00 noon.  The dip will kick off at 1.30pm.  This is a later start from previous years due to the low tide at 11am.

PLACE: at the (north end) slipway to Stonehaven harbour. 

REGISTRATION: at the RNLI boat shed, by the harbour from 12.00 noon.  Registration costs £10 per dipper, with all profits going to the RNLI and this year’s nominated charity – the Mackie Academy Young Carer Group. 

The Mackie Young Carers consists of pupils with significant caring responsibilities at home and the funds will help provide respite activities to give them a short break from their responsibilities.  We are helping them to raise £2000 – donations can be made on the day but a Just Giving site has also been set up where you can make a contribution. 

As in previous years the High Street will be closed to traffic (other than residents) so please park in the town centre or along by the Leisure Centre and walk to the harbour along the Boardwalk.

Enjoy the Dip!
