Deal Rotary Boxing Day Dip

Come and join us for a splash on Boxing Day morning

Dippers entering the sea near Deal Pier

The Deal Rotary Boxing Day Dip has been operarted by the Club since 2018, when we assumed responsibility for the tradition from the founding family (Margaret Edwards - PHF awarded by the Club in 2019) It originally ran as 'Deal Icebreakers'

In 2022 we had a then record 503 entrants and in 2023 that record was beaten again where 605 dippers entered the sea for the annual 'Dip' - the event raised approx £6000 which is distributed to local good causes and groups.

For the past two years we have organised the 'dip' in partnership with The Rotary Club of the Three Castles of Deal (AKA "The Pirates")

The 'Dip' also facilitates many 'dippers' to raise considerable funds for their own chosen charitaries
