Thank you and congratulations to all those who participated in the Traditional Charity Santa Swim on Christmas Day in Armação de Pêra. The weather was warm with blue skies and sea was fairly calm, with a temperature of about 18ºC.  Santas started arriving from 10.15am, and at 11.00am a great number of Santas ran toward the sea for their annual dip in the ocean.
Our thanks to film crews from TVI,  SIC, and CMTV who came to record  the event.

Everyone enjoyed a very welcome glass of Hot Chocolate and Brandy in the Holiday Inn Algarve Bar afterwards.
