Cheerio Cromarty Splash & Dash
Unfortunately, the initiators and organisers of all six Cromarty Splash & Dash events are no longer in a position to continue. We created a fantastic event that grew in size and reputation extremely quickly, almost doubling in size year on year! As volunteers with busy lives, organising all the many elements required at an already hectic time of year is just no longer possible. We're sad to see it go but it was great fun while it lasted.
If others wish to step up to continue with the event, we wish you well and would be happy to impart our knowledge, paperwork and hardware to help you on your way. However, it should be noted that the Royal Hotel, the crucial 'hub' of the event, is also likely to be unavailable for future events.
There will always be a bunch of hardy souls who fling themselves into the Firth on New Year's Day, with or without an organised event, and that's a great tradition that we're sure will live on.
Thanks again to everyone who helped out with, participated in and generally supported the Cromarty Splash & Dash over the years. We have lots of fantastic photos, videos, trophies and great memories to chuckle over for the rest of time.
And you never know, this event may yet rise from the ashes in some form or other...
