New Year ‘Dook’ in Dundee


Water trained safety volunteers from MVS Dundee turned out on New Year’s Day to support the annual Amphibious Ancients Bathers Association ‘Dook’ at Broughty Ferry harbour.

Hundreds of people braved freezing temperatures to take part in the event and despite a wicked wind whipping in off the Tay, hundreds more people lined up to watch the Dookers take the plunge.

The MVS crew assisted by providing water safety for the record 200 plus participants who were raising money for charity.

The water temperature was a balmy 4.9C.
