We will do our traditional poem by George Sibley at 11 am. and then the plunge…

Much Thanks Joey,

Cathy McCarthy

If you haven’t Plunged before let me tell you there is no better way to start the year. Conquer some fears, step outside your “normal”, ring in the new year with friends and family and start the New Year off funky fresh on Rocky Neck.

ANYONE and I MEAN ANYONE that has done it in the past comes back to do it again because it is so uplifting and exhilarating.

Won’t you join US?!!!

  11. Evelyn Howe says:

    I am in!!

  12. Veteran Plungers, do you have any advice for us newbies? Things you wish you had brought with you? Best swimming costumes? Training advice?

    • Training advice? Shovel your driveway today in your tighty whities. Before finishing stuff a snowball in your shorts. You’ll be all set.

      Swimming costumes: any swimming costume for warmth, wetsuits, shorties, are subject to ridicule. Highest praise for bikinis and banana slings. Body paint is encouraged. Anyone have Rubber Duck yellow?

      • Paul, your response is exactly why I love and adore the good people of Gloucester! This Southern gal is looking forward to freezing my butt off tomorrow with all of ya’ll.

        Oh and I did my training today!
