Brave souls show up for the big dip into New Year 2016

Taking a plunge into the chilly waters of Ladysmith Harbour

The New Year’s Day tradition of taking a plunge into the chilly waters of Ladysmith Harbour drew its usual crowd of enthusiasts, including the winners of the Best Costume contest, who couldn’t get to Hawaii on short notice, but figured they could bring a bit of Hawaii to the Central Island. The revelers were quick  getting into the drink… and many just as quick getting out! Thanks to those who captured the moment and shared their photos with the Chronicle.
