Blue skies and mild weather offered the brave who, at 10 o’clock this morning, decided to fulfil the tradition of the 1st dive of the year, in the Lido.
The ‘Madeira Plunge 2018’ was promoted by the Funchal Sea Front, in a program that lasted until 1pm, with yoga and a soup to warm up after the dive.
In addition to marking the New Year, the initiative is charitable, since ticket revenue (€ 3 per person) goes back to the Acreditar Association, which supports children and young people with cancer.

I was in the lido area this morning and got a few photos as well.
